Praying with WOW is always an experience – sometimes positive and sometimes negative but always meaningful. This morning was an incredibly positive experience for me, and I think for many members of WOW, because of the presence of three very special young ladies: Alexandra, Eliza and Lucy from Moving Traditions. These three young ladies won a competition that asked them to express, in writing and on video, their support for WOW. They are all members of the youth movement Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! and brought such wonderful energy with them to the Kotel. They were able, as was I, to experience WOW’s attempt to bring their Torah into the Kotel and to see Anat Hoffman and all of WOW at their best both interacting with security and with protesters within the women’s section.
