Anat hoffman became executive Director of the Israel religious Action center in April 2002. Previously, Ms. hoffman served as a Jerusalem city councilwoman for 14 years, carving out a niche for herself as an untiring warrior for justice and equality. She has dedicated her adult life to the Jewish principle of tikkun olam. It is this commitment to social action and justice that has formed her career. She is also the director of neshot haKotel, an organization of women who pray at the Western Wall in an egalitarian manner. In a city where women are traditionally consigned to a subordinate role, Ms. Hoffman led in the battles for the right of women to pray at the Western Wall and for women’s equal pay for equal work. Ms. 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. Significantly, too, in a city split by religious differences, she has fought tirelessly for religious pluralism.
