Who Owns the Wall? Striving for Equality at Judaism's Holiest Site
featuring Yochi Rappeport, Executive Director
Women of the Wall

Adult Ed invites you to join us for this free event. Zoom information will be emailed to you upon registration, below.

 

Yochi Rappeport will speak about Women of the Wall’s 32-year history, challenges and successes in the struggle to bring gender equality and religious pluralism to the Western Wall. Yochi will also speak about her journey as a woman who lives an Orthodox lifestyle while also identifying as a feminist. 
 
Yochi was born in Safed and raised in the Orthodox environment of the Old City of her birth. At 18, She was drafted into the Israel Defense Forces where she served as a commander in the Nativ Military Course teaching Judaism and Zionism. Following her military service, Yochi studied Bar Ilan University and then joined Women of the Wall in 2016 as Director of Education and Community Outreach. In 2019, after expanding WOW’s educational activities to more than 3,000 people a year — including 2,000 students — Yochi was appointed Executive Director. Her identity as an Orthodox woman and feminist shows that a woman may indeed possess both attributes. Married and the mother of toddler girl, Yochi strives to make Jerusalem and Israel more tolerant places for her daughter’s generation and beyond.
