TEL AVIV — Racheli Ibenboim acts as if she’s in a rush, repeatedly checking her phone before hurrying off to her next appointment exactly 30 minutes after the current one begins.
The way Ibenboim tells it, she’s not just trying to keep up with a tight schedule but with a rapidly changing world.
Two years ago, her campaign to include women in haredi political parties failed. But times may be changing. This year, the chasidic mother’s effort has garnered national attention and 5,000 supporters on Facebook since it relaunched less than a month ago.
