Rate this:
A band of brave Jewish women is fighting back for the right to raise their voices at the Wailing Wall. The holy site is the most potent symbol for Jews. But it is dominated by the ultra-Orthodox, who seek to maintain segregation of the sexes and limit the rights of women who want to pray there. This documentary tells how a group of women is challenging the iron grip of the reactionaries and demanding reform. "We want the scroll of independence, not the Dead Sea scrolls," says Anat Hoffman, leader of Women of the Wall. Each month the ultra-Orthodox react whenever the women raise their voices in prayer. Hoffman has been arrested and is now forbidden from returning to the wall.
