Jewish Women's Archive ADMIN December 17, 2009
Welcome to the Women of the Wall Flickr collection project. Please join and add your photos to the group pool!

Group Description

Thursday, Dec. 17, 2009 has been named a Day of Solidarity and Support for Nofrat Frenkel, the med student arrested for wearing a talit at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

This group photo pool calls for women who have participated in Women of the Wall (WOW) over the past 21 years to help build its historical record. There is no official archive of WOW (yet), and while there is an excellent anthology on WOW, it does not include a list of the 70 who took part in that first service 21 years ago. As far as I can reconstruct, the women listed below were among those original 70.

Please add your photos to this collection documenting Women of the Wall. Please contribute names and any information you have about your photos and these women.

Together, we can help build on the strength of 21 years of committed activism, integrating women's stories into the historical record of the fight for religious pluralism.

Some of the original 70 participants in WOW: Rivka Haut; Phyllis Chesler; Bonna Haberman; Anat Hoffman; Karen Erlichman; Rabbi Helene Ferris; Beryl Michaels; Rabbi Deborah Brin; Francine Klagsbrun; Norma Baumel Joseph; Geela Rayzel Raphae.
