Female MKs pray with Women of the Wall

MKs Stav Shafir (Labor), Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) and Michal Rozin (Meretz) participated on March 12 in the Women of the Wall Rosh Chodesh prayers at the Kotel (Pictured, from left: Anat Hoffman, MK Stav Shaffir, MK Tamar Zandberg, and Leslie Sachs). All three, like the rest of the 300 women present, donned prayer shawls, in violation of a 2003 Supreme Court’s ruling – and some 30 per cent of the women were Israeli Modern Orthodox. This time, however, due to the presence of three legislators, police refrained from arresting anyone. The group noted that this was the first time in 22 months in which none of them ended up in jail.

Reform Wedding at the Knesset


Dear Friend,

My son Ariel and his girlfriend Michal announced their engagement last week. They do not want to be married by the Rabbinate, so like too many Israelis they will purchase two tickets to Cyprus and get a civil marriage at the Nicosia municipal hall. Upon their return we will hold a wedding here in Israel officiated by a Reform Rabbi, which, unlike their marriage in Cyprus, will not be recognized by the Israeli  State.
