Personal PAC 25th Anniversary Luncheon with Anat Hoffman

This year Personal PAC is thrilled to award Anat Hoffman the Irving B. Harris Spirit of Choice Award in recognition of her tireless work on behalf of women in Israel. Ms. Hoffman is a founding member of Women of the Wall, and has served on the Boards of the Israel Women’s Network, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel and many other Israeli organizations for social change. In Jerusalem, where women are traditionally consigned to a subordinate role, Hoffman led the battles for the right of women to pray at the Western Wall and for women’s equal pay for equal work. Hoffman is currently the Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center and guides IRAC in its work to promote Jewish Pluralism, tolerance, equality and to combat racism.
