My Bookshelf, My Country: Understanding Israel through its Writing

Anat Hoffman

Anat Hoffman’s world is filled with demonstrations, vigils, courtrooms and confrontations in and out of parliament. Here she shared books that inspire, direct and move her to action.

The tour of Anat’s library covers texts from Amos Oz’s meditations on Israel to Dirshuni, a collection of contemporary Midrash by Israeli women, which offers a truly fresh look at ancient texts.

Anat Hoffman is an untiring warrior for justice and equality. Director of the Israel Religious Action Centre, she is also a co-founder of Women of the Wall.
