Anat Hoffman, Reform Leader in Israel, Interrogated by Jerusalem Police
Anat Hoffman, a veteran activist for women's rights in Israel and a leader of the Reform movement in Israel, has been interrogated by the Jerusalem police in what appears to be a blatant political move to silence the activists.
We don't have all the facts about what happened but having spent some time this summer with Anat Hoffman, I can testify to her ethics, her decency and bravery in the battle for equal rights. This is potentially one of the most irresponsible things the government could have allowed and could cause a huge rift with the Reform movement in America and Israel. How can the Western Wall not belong to all of the Jewish people?
Here is Ben Harris's video of Anat which I strong urge you to look at.
