The Women of the Wall’s antics, as we have written herehere and here, are ridiculous, but the Hareidi rulers of the Western Wall are even more absurd.

An Orthodox woman enters the Western Wall with a hat or scarf, but a Reform Jew cannot enter with a kippah?


Perhaps the Hareidi rabbis’ problem is that her wearing a kippah violates the law that a man should not wear women’s clothes, and a woman should not wear a man’s clothes.

Perhaps they are afraid that first it’s a kippah, and then it’s tefillin and a Torah scroll.

More probable, they are afraid of anyone who does not dress like them and think like them. The Israeli Hareidi establishment does not understand that drawing a red line as soon as someone does not confirm to its whims is equivalent to drawing an “x” and excluding a Jew from Judaism forever.

Neither does MK Azoulay, who in two or three sentences brought us back to 2,000 years ago, when ‘Loshon HaRa” brought down the Second Temple.
