What a week for Jewish women making headlines!
While these topics have been flying on the net, Yom Yerushalayim went under the radar, even though thousands of people were involved.
Where were the complaints about the Jerusalem Day celebrations?
Women were segregated to their own section of the street.
Boys were the featured singers and women were not singing.
Ok…the guys section was crowded and smelled bad after two hours of wild dancing, but that was not the reason it was female-free.
What kept the girls and guys apart better then this Egged double bus?
It was those girls in the safety vests who really took their job seriously.
They kept order by blocking guys on King George Street
and at the Kotel Plaza… no one was going to get past them.
They stood their ground, only a couple of Israeli soldiers made it through.
Go, girls go..hold that line.
The guys, well they just did not have the same stance and attitude..
A new generation of Jewish women is on the rise. Forget those old stereotypes of the Jewish American Princess. In Israel, May 23, 2012 200 women swam across the Kinneret to raise money for charity in a
program called Swim 4 Sadna.
Go, new girls, go!
