The idea for the services
was actually conceived long
before the spate of clashes by
Rivka,Haut, a member of the
Women's Tefillah Group of
Brooklyn, which coordinates
prayer groups for halachicly
observant women.
Each service ran a little less
than two hours and included
different readings and nig-
gunim (melodies). In Mon-
treal, they read from the
works of the late Rabbi
Abraham Joshua Herschel as
well as a poem by Hannah
Senesh, the Hungarian
Jewish wartime hero and
The New York gathering
brought together women from
the mainstream and women
from fringe groups, older
women, younger women and
even children.
Organizers and par-
ticipants included author and
psychologist Phyllis Chesler;
former Congresswoman Bella
Abzug, who chairs the Inter-
national Jewish Feminist
Network set up last
December in Jerusalem; and
Harriet Kurlander, director of
. the American Jewish Con-
gress Commission for
Women's Equality.
Marion Shulevitz, who at
56 plans to be ordained a Con-
servative rabbi next month,
recalled being harassed at the
Wall in Jerusalem by Or-
thodox women. "The wall is
for all of us," she said.
Rabbi Nina Cardin, one of
about 10 leaders of the New
York service, read from Pirkei
Avot (Ethics of the Fathers),
which noted that women had
been present on the Temple
Cardin, who was ordained a
Conservative rabbi last year
by the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, hand-
ed out a tambourine sym-
bolizing the timbrel, the in-
strument Jewish women car-
ried into the Sinai after the
Exodus from Egypt. It was
signed by all to be sent to the
Jerusalem women's group.
In Montreal, the women
sent a petition protesting the
treatment of the women at
the Wall to the Jerusalem
women's group as well as
Prime Minister YitZhak
Shamir and the Chief Rab-
binate, Norma Josephs of the
Montreal Tefillah Service
Haut said the Women's
Tefillah Group has contacted
major Jewish organizations to
send letters and telegrams
decrying the attacks on
women at the Wall to Shamir,
the Chief • Rabbinate,
Religious Affairs Minister
Zevulun Hammer and
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
