This is important because WOW not only leads the effort for women’s religious rights in Israel, but is at the forefront of many of the important civil equality efforts now underway.   AND, its executive director, Leslie Sachs, will be our guest Wednesday at 7:30 PM, @ TBA.

She is an exciting speaker with us at an exciting time.
