WOW's purpose is social transformation, overturning the status quo which prevents women from praying freely at the Western Wall. WOW educates Israeli society about the social, political and human rights issues involved in unfairly silencing women.
WOW executes unique programs and activities for Jewish women and the general public, promoting the legal acknowledgement of Jewish women's right to pray of their own expression in the women's section of the Western Wall. WOW fights to pray as a group, singing aloud and reading from the Torah scroll while wrapped in tallit and tefillin. WOW encourages women to reclaim Jewish ritual for which there is no true Jewish law prohibitions.

Women of the Wall is comprised of Israeli women and Jewish women from around the world, striving for the right for Jewish women to conduct group prayer services, to read from a Torah scroll while wearing prayer shawls and phylacteries, and to sing out loud at the women's section of the Western Wall– Judaism’s most holiest site and the principal symbol of Jewish peoplehood and sovereignty. For the last thirty years, WOW has acted as the prominent voice for women, reclaiming public holy space and ritual by its regular presence at the Western Wall.
