“Praying in Her Own Voice” Film Screening and Discussion
By Danielle Berin and Dikla Kadosh

Israel Matters at Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills along with Beth Chayim Chadashim,Ikar and Kol Ami, invite the community for the exclusive movie screening of “Praying in Her Own Voice”.

This powerful film documents the courageous struggle of the famed “Women of the Wall” movement. This group has spearheaded the battle for women’s equality in the religious world. Its focus is the Western Wall--- the holiest site for Jews --- where Orthodox, Conservative and Reform women are not allowed to gather and pray in community. Women of the Wall have challenged the Israeli government for a decade.This is their story.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Ravit Markus, the film maker, and Myra Newman, member of the Pluralism and Religious Diversity in Israel Committee of the LA-Tel Aviv Partnership.

The screening is made possible by a generous gift from the Chais Family Foundation.

Sunday, October 26, 2008 at 7:00 PM. $10. Temple Emanuel, 8844 Burton Way, Beverly Hills, CA 90211.
