To help protect your privacy, Outlook prevented automatic download of this picture from the Internet.ARZA is appalled by the recent arrest of Anat Hoffman, leader of Women of the Wall and Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center. Anat was praying at the Western Wall on Tuesday with more than 200 women when she was taken into custody for disturbing public order.
Anat’s arrest underscores issues of pluralism and gender in Israel, and ARZA calls upon the Israeli government to act, not only in Anat’s defense, but ensuring the rights of all people, no matter their gender or denomination, who wish to pray at the Wall.
The Reform Movement has released an official statement which can be found on the ARZA website. Please feel free to share this statement, or any part of it.
