Cracks in the City of Stone: struggling for pluralism in modern Jerusalem
Anat Hoffman is a world-renowned Israeli activist and a founding member of Women of the Wall, an organization which fights for women’s equal access to the Western Wall. Additionally, she is the Executive Director of IRAC (Israel Religious Action Center), the legal and advocacy arm of the Reform Movement in Israel.
Today IRAC is the pre-eminent civil and human rights organization in Israel and the leading Jewish organization that advocates on behalf of a broadly inclusive Israeli democracy. Previously, Ms. Hoffman held a seat on the Jerusalem City Council. In 2013, the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, named her “Person of the Year,” and the Jerusalem Post listed her fifth among its list of 50 Most Influential Jews, noting her role in bringing the issue of women’s rights at the Western Wall to the forefront of the consciousness of world Jewry.
Ms. Hoffman’s talk will focus on the struggle of IRAC to create a more pluralistic Judaism and a more appropriate representation – not only for women, but for all of the city’s inhabitants.
Presented as part of the TOS Talks Series. Following the talk we will have a Q & A discussion and reception.+ More... - Less...
