A Likud lawmaker offered to prevent egalitarian prayer at the Western Wall in exchange for a small party dropping out of Israeli elections.
She asked for “a list of all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren so she could pray for them.” Then 400 people showed up.
Nikki Haley, conservative American politician, former UN Ambassador and beloved celebrity in Israel, recently visited the Western Wall.
Mollen and her husband, Jason Biggs, celebrated in Jerusalem.
Work on the wall was backhandedly approved to make it a handicapped-accessible site.
It was transferred to the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, which will be responsible for examining and preserving it.
“I thank the Almighty for preventing a major disaster,” said Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, the rabbi of the Western Wall.
Haredi protesters burned a Jewish prayer book near the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
“The Reform Movement’s demand to turn the Wall into a place where men and women pray together is unacceptable to me or to Jewish tradition.”
These spiteful “opponents” are in fact our teammates in the fight for women’s rights in Judaism — even if they do not realize it.
