Coming up on Connections: Thursday, January 30th
12 noon: "Professional troublemaker" and fighter for women's religious rights, Anat Hoffman.
1pm: Creators of the documentary The Great Chicken Wing Hunt. Yes, they are searching for the best chicken wings, and yes, their search takes them to Buffalo.
At noon, international figure Anat Hoffman joins us in studio. She's a founding member of Women of the Wall, an organization that fights for women to be treated equally at the historic Western Wall in Jerusalem. Two years ago, Hoffman was arrested for praying at the wall; she was told that her behavior is reserved for men. She described being strip-searched and thrown in jail. Tonight, she speaks to the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester. This afternoon, she's on Connections, pushing buttons and envelopes and orthodox rabbis to madness.
At one, we preview a new documentary that comes to The Little Theatre this weekend. It's called The Great Chicken Wing Hunt, and food lovers will be taken on a journey to America's hottest (and, er, hottest) wings. The mostly sane star of the film joins us in studio, and we'll talk to the director.
