at Temple Sholom.

From pressure to sit at the back of public buses to attacks on school girls for dressing “immodestly”, an Orthodox woman requires tremendous strength and commitment to push back against efforts to marginalize women in Israel.

Join NIFC and feminist pioneer Hannah Kehat, founder of Israel’s first Orthodox feminist
