Women of the Wall mourn the loss of our founder and sister, Rivka Haut. Rivka was the visionary who conceived the idea of the first women's Torah service at the Kotel on December 1, 1988. That day she organized women from Israel and abroad, from across the Jewish denominational spectrum to pray together at the Kotel, serving as the inspiration for the creation of Women of the Wall. Her legacy will live on in the continuing struggle for women's right to pray together and read Torah at the Kotel and in her dedicated work to help free the chains of agunut. May her memory always be a blessing.
