Anat Hoffman, executive director of the Israel Religious Action Center, speaks about the achievements of ARZA in Israel.
As ARZA and the UPJ continue to work together as a united Progressive Jewish family, building the ARZA Australia membership for the World Zionist Congress, we are delighted to bring to you a wonderful video clip from Anat Hoffman.
Anat is the Executive Director of IRAC, the Israel Religious Action Centre. She is also the founding member of Nashot HaKotel, known as Women of the Wall.
IRAC has brought about significant legal achievements for the Progressive movement in Israel, such as making gender segregation on public transportation illegal, ending the Orthodox monopoly on state-funded salaries to rabbis and receiving state funding for the construction of non-Orthodox synagogues in Israel. IRAC has achieved this and much more for Progressive Judaism in Eretz Yisrael.
