      Women of the Wall Welcome Streisand's Remarks


      The Women of the Wall welcomed Monday’s remarks by singer Barbra Streisand, who slammed what she called the “discriminatory behavior” against women by members of the hareidi community.  

      "How embarrassing it is that such an important guest from abroad needs to come and say what should be obvious,” the organization said in a statement. “We hope that the words of Barbara Streisand reached the ears of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the relevant ministers, and that they will take immediate action to correct the distortion with respect to the exclusion of women in general and at the Western Wall in particular.”
