The Kotel Rav, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, on Sunday morning expressed sorrow this over the prayer of the Women of the Wall and the serious inconvenience it generated for many.
“This morning, the Kotel was turned into an enclosed fortress, to serve the provocative needs of this group of women,” wrote Rabbi Rabinowitz. “This image of a castle is a disgrace to the entire Jewish people. When barriers are placed inside the prayer sections, and at the same time the bathrooms are closed, and the entrance of worshipers into the Kotel plaza is prevented, it is a disgrace to all of us and a deep injury to the sanctity of the Western Wall and the unity it represents.”
