Chief Rebbetzens of Israel Make Pre-Passover Appearance


The wives of the chief rabbis of Israel made a joint and very public pre-Pesach visit to Bat Melech, the only kosher and Sabbath-observant shelter for battered  women in Israel.  

Rabbanit Yosef and Rabbanit Lau met with the women in the shelter, offering them encouragement, kind words, and joining with them in a baking activity. Their words contained messages of freedom, particularly relevant to those all too familiar with the  slavery of domestic violence and emotional and physical abuse.
