A mother’s prayer, a father’s dream, our people’s future

Haley W.

Age: 17

Grade: 12th

Program: Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El in Wynnewood, PA.

Her slogan:

A mother’s prayer, a father’s dream, our people’s future. Stand together. Women of the Wall.

Haley makes the case for gender equality at the Wall:

The Women of the Wall movement, to me, is about the future of the Jewish people. If we as Jews want to defeat statistics and preserve our culture for generations to come, we must first learn to unite, regardless of gender or denomination. Just as I would want to pray next to my brother at the Western Wall, I believe that all Jews should have the equal chance to express their prayers at the Kotel.
