Silvermans don’t go down

While her husband continues to fight for alternate energy, Rabbi Susan Silverman Abramowitz, Sarah’s sister, continues to fight for women’s rights at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. For the second time this year, she and her daughter were among those arrested at the Wall on April 11, for daring to wear traditional Jewish prayer shawls (tallit) there, which the Orthodox allow for men only.  In photo, Susan is down-center with Sarah’s niece, Hallel, to her left. Two months ago both women were arrested for the same offense.
