  1. Not true, about "sneaking out" they have left that way before. There was more security than WOW this am

  2. Were there really 10,000?

    Comment by Hadassah Levy — October 4, 2013 @ 9:40 AM

  3. close to it. WoW had under 100 though, no where near 200.

  4. Do I detect a note of sarcasm in Yanover's essay (regarding the "seminarians" who yelled, screamed, and cussed out WOW while ostensibly praying for the recovery of the esteemed Tzadik Ovadia Josef), or is that just my imagination?

    If 10% of what was written in Ha'aretz is true, the "seminarians" outdid themselves in disgracing both the educational institutions they attend and orthodox Judaism as a whole.

  6. So what is woman want to pray at the Wall. I am sure that these young woman can perhaps shout out the Palestinians who are slowly taking over all of Jerusalem and of Israel proper. Let these young woman put on Army uniforms and really defend Jerusalem.

  7. I feel that the comment "Look at the funny ladies with tallitot and teffilin" is a very very very sick one and relfects where the writer is at with HIS Judaisim = nowehre at all and is far more destructive than any woman wearing a tallit (I saw no tfillin in the picture!!!) These woman have a right to pray and if their Jewish identity has to be competative with men then they are also lacking for they do not know the true nature of a Jewish woman – who sets the spiritual tone of every home, who has been given the God given right to bear children as being as close to creation as the human can get, who gives birth in pain but the passive husband (the orgiinal Adam who did not stand up to his wife for the truth) has given pain to the woman in brith for his sin (and not so muvh for hers although she lied to the serpent) and who is not obligated to prayer for the most part as what she does far outways anything the man does through his thrice daily prayers etc etc. Woman it is time to wake up to whom you are and don't need to compete IT IS VERY HURTFUL TO AM YEHUDI TO HAVE THIS JOURNAL COMMENT AS IT DID!!!!

  8. Any person who ridicules, spits, insults or harms someone who is praying is not a true believer in the almighty. Everyone has a right to worship. No one has a right to attack them. If you think otherwise do it in the privacy of your own home, not in a place that should be available to all.

  9. Are you ready to put on a uniform to defend Jerusalem?

  10. The Sem girls behaved in a disrespectful & reprehensible manner. Obviously they did nothing in Tishri. I suggest they re-open Selichot!

  11. Yeah, and “women of the wall” are saints.

  12. Stop being so sanctimonious

    Comment by Menachem Rephun — October 4, 2013 @ 6:06 PM

  13. Spitting and such are wrong, but it is foolish in light of the Pew Poll that just came out in America (and the other studies previous to that which agreed) to even entertain the incorporation of non-Orthodox practice in Israel. Importing what has been proven to be a suicide pact for Judaism into Israel is well…suicidal.

    I understand that this fact is a hard pill to swallow and will ruffle a few feathers, but its long past the time we should start acting like adults and not spoiled brats demanding we get our individualized selfish ways. Well, only if you actually want the Jewish people, and Israel, to survive that is.

    The stats are in; non-Orthodox Judaism is suicide. As has occurred in the U.S., going down this path ends in death and the complete destruction of Judaism. Doing the same thing over and over again is insanity. Someone inform Hoffman.

  15. those “pious” bastards insulting other jews who only want pray in the most important jewish place. Yes, so pious

  16. No intelligent discussion about WoW can be had without taking the recent Pew Poll into consideration. Every study taken has shown that introducing non-Orthodox practices into Jewish communities is suicide. I understand that that isn’t a very comfortable truth, but study after study have shown that it is nonetheless a truth.

    Yet, introducing non-Orthodox practices into the predominantly Orthodox Israel is exactly what WoW is trying to do. There is no rational reason that Israel should, or would want to do this.

    Getting a short-term high from committing suicide by heroin (ie: non-Orthodox Judaism) is no better for you in the long run than any other type of death (ie: by Iranian bomb). Both should be avoided, despite the feeeelings of others that might be hurt.

  17. We all do know don’t we that all of the so-called reports of disrespectful behavior came ONLY from WoW, (hardly an unbiased source), right?

  18. If the stupidity of Orthodox Judaism is its future, I'd rather be dead.

  21. I was erased 3 times but I am stuburn and I will start over again.
    I say that reform is here to stay,and better accept it.
    Men have always dominated women,without G"s acceptance and it is
    all about loosing their grip on women.Let The Almyty decide which prayer he will accept.Let the women pray as they see fit ,Times are changing,and women woke up to take part in the services,with the only intencion to pray to our Lord with
    devotion ,they want to have the same oportunities as man,to come closer to the Divinity,shall we blame them for this yearning?
    Or shall we encorage them
    Men are afraid to lose their power over women especialy the ortodox who consider women good only to serve them,work for them,bear their children.
    But they will no longer prevail Womens prayers will open the gates of mercy
    and set them free.
