The issue of women becoming involved in synagogue services to the point of holding a Torah scroll is as loaded in the Diaspora than it is in Israel.
The Western Wall Rabbi told Haredi girls to – in effect – let the Women of the Wall pray as they wish. An analogy to “let sleeping dogs lie” would be taken the wrong way.
The Women of the Wall are unhappy again. Yes, they can read from the Torah, but now that have no scroll. It was damaged by dampness, and WoW blames the government for lack of proper storage.
If the Women of the Wall want equality with men, why don’t they try to perform the Priestly Blessing at the Western Wall? Do tribal distinctions contradict “equality?” If so, who needs a Reform "rabbi?"

The Kotel Rav, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, on Sunday morning expressed sorrow this over the prayer of the Women of the Wall and the serious...
Women of the Wall plan their monthly Rosh Chodesh prayers at the Kotel the second day of the month, with a Torah scroll. It’s okay to make up rules as they go along, so long as the Orthodox don’t make the rules.
