Standing strong with the people of Israel, ‘Women of the Wall’ is saddened and shocked by the kidnapping of Naftali, Eyal and Gil-ad six days ago. The fabric of the Jewish people is a diverse and colorful one- woven together tightly by faith. Women of the Wall have faith that the boys will be returned to their families swiftly. Until then, we pray and stand united.
On Rosh Hodesh Tammuz, June 29, 2014, Women of the Wall will gather to pray at the Kotel. Though we cannot know what the fate of our nation and the kidnapped boys will be in ten days time and we pray for a celebratory occasion, either way we invite women to gather with us at the Kotel – to pray for peace and the welfare of the State of Israel.
We remain dedicated to women’s free prayer at the Kotel, with a Torah scroll. Now more than ever, we depend on our faith, our traditions and Torah to get us through. We continue to look to Israel’s leaders to ensure women’s rights at the Kotel. For more information and to get involved, go to www.womenofthewall.org.il/letmytorahgo.
