Thanks for the Chair! (Sold Out)


This tambourine was created by artist Betsy Platkin Teutsch to honor and support the women who fight for the right to pray and read Torah at the Western Wall, a struggle that continues today. 

In the Jewish tradition, an empty chair signifies both the absence and the desired presence of someone important. This tambourine depicts the prophet Miriam leading the women of Israel in song, prayer and celebration at the Wall.  We look forward to the day when all people have the right to sing and pray at this holy site.

Each 10'' tambourine costs $85. Shipping is included. All purchases support the ongoing work of Ritualwell.
