The Women of the Wall prayer service at the Western Wall on Monday morning passed off relatively quietly despite a promise by hard-line religious-Zionist activists to protest against the group. The group faced jeers and other mild forms of harassment by other women praying in the women’s section, as well as similar activity by small groups of Orthodox children harassing a group of men praying in solidarity with the Women of the Wall.
I hope you all have had a good summer thus far. In July, the Hammerman clan mourned the loss of our 17 year old canine matriarch, Chloe, a loss that we still feel acutely. We've been comforted by a bundle of puppy energy that we managed to sit still long enough to take the photo below. We welcome Cobie Hammerman to the TBE community.
To everyone, Shabbat Shalom and let's all gather our strength and summon our optimism for a great new year, which is so close at hand, just two weeks away.
Rabbi Joshua Hammerman
