When I began covering the Women of the Wall, the flagship of the Reform insurgency in Israel, my initial take was sympathetic.
The rabbi of the Western Wall said he "can live with" a plan presented by Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky for a permanent prayer...
Sharansky says the Western Wall is long enough for women to have their own minyan and Torah reading. The Women of the Wall leader accepts the compromise. Will the Rabbinate big enough to agree?
Israel’s Haredi rabbis continue to make a mockery of themselves and of Judaism by pressing to arrest women for saying the mourner’s prayer at the Kotel. Sharansky comes to the rescue.
