Shevet Achim participant Bennett Decker from Philadelphia speaks out about why he supports Women of the Wall — and why he hopes you will join him.
Hi! I’m Bennett Decker. I’ve been in Shevet Achim for two years now. This summer, my family and I took a trip to Israel and we decided to go and daven with Women of the Wall on Rosh Hodesh Av.
I have two sisters and I feel like they should have every opportunity to wear tallit, and to wear tefillin, and to read Torah.
So I urge every teen to enter in this incredible contest from Moving Traditions and to get a chance to go to Israel — and not just watch history but to actually participate in it.
