Description

Anat Hoffman is a major leader for social justice in Israel and a founding member of Women of the Wall, whose central mission is to achieve the social and legal recognition of the right for women to wear prayer shawls, pray and read from the Torah collectively and out loud at the Western Wall. In 2002, Anat Hoffman became the Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), the legal and advocacy arm of the Reform Movement in Israel. IRAC’s goals are to promote the values of religious pluralism, human equality, social justice and religious tolerance in Israel and to strengthen the public standing of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism (Reform), its congregations and institutions and to protect their rights.
