Court: Women of the Wall May Pray at Kotel

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court has ruled that the state's interpretation of a Supreme Court ruling that has led it to outlaw Women of the Wall from donning prayer shawls and reading the Torah is incorrect.

"These activities are not against the law, and do not have to be confined to Robinson's Arch, which is not prepared to accommodate ongoing prayer services anyway," says the Court ruling.
