As has been the case in recent months, Hareidi women and girls who attend religious seminaries are expected to turn out, Monday morning, at the Western Wall Plaza in Jerusalem's Old City in protest of the observance of the new Jewish month of Kislev by the non-Orthodox Women of the Wall. Organizers urged the public that is expected to flood the area not to be dragged into acts of violence that would desecrate G-d's name, adding that the protest was only by the women and seminary girls.
Rabbi Benny Nachtweiler, chief executive officer of the Bnei Akiva Yeshivas Center, sent messages to heads of religious girls' high schools that there was a place to join the protest. Report of the message outraged associates of Jewish Home (New National Religious Party) Chairman Naftali Bennett, who has been trying, for months, to arrangement that is acceptable to all. Last week, after having declared they would cooperate, representatives of Women of the Wall demanded an end to the Orthodox protests.
