She has written for the Jerusalem Post and other publications in Israel and abroad, as well as in her blog list, about Israel and Jewish issues.
An Orthodox woman, feminist and iconoclast, Naomi is a tireless advocate for women’s rights in Israel, waging a relentless campaign against domestic abuse and bias in Rabbinical Courts, as well as a successful Supreme Court case against gender segregation on Israeli buses. Her lecture is sure to be fascinating, touching on important and timely issues.
