Mechitza! Mishtara!

A group of 200 Conservative rabbis protesting the expansion of the barrier between the men and women’s sections at the Kotel clashed with police in front of the Wall yesterday yesterday.

“Unilateral actions by those who view the area as their own private domain must not be allowed to stand,” Rabbi Andrew Sacks, director of the RA of Israel said. “If we permit actions such as these, we will quickly find ourselves on a slippery slope toward losing our rights at Judaism’s most holy site.”

The cops responded by informing them that the wall “is a place of prayer, not protest.”
