Watch Anat’s Arrest at the Kotel

For those who haven’t seen it yet, here is the video of Anat Hoffman’s arrest at the Kotel for carrying a Torah scroll.  Looks eerily like images of the 1960s Civil Rights movement. Notice some of the women (including Anat) wearing thair tallitot wrapped around them like a scarf. This is because some women have been arrested for wearing a tallit openly at the Kotel.

This will be the great struggle for Israel’s soul: will the Jewish state recognize the beauty and vitality of Jewish pluralism, or will it allow Judaism to sink into ruin by recognizing only the most backward and misogynistic form?

Can we, Diaspora Jews/liberal Jews, fix our relationship with Israel? Read my recent thoughts.
