Our Leading Voice for Social Justice in Israel
Anat Hoffman is the executive director of the Israel Religious Action Center and guides its work to promote Jewish pluralism, tolerance and equality and to combat racism, corruption and religious coercion. In a city where women are traditionally consigned to a subordinate role, Hoffman continues to lead in the battle for the right of women to pray at the Western Wall and for women’s equal pay for equal work. Hoffman pushed relentlessly for the provision of adequate municipal services for the more than 200,000 Palestinian residents of Jerusalem. She has fought long and hard to see that the powerful Orthodox bloc in the City Council does not dictate lifestyle choices for the secular population of Jerusalem.
