200 Women of the Wall Participate in Kotel Service


200 Women of the Wall arrived at the Kotel to pray Thursday morning, but were prevented from bringing in a Torah scroll. WoW Chairwoman Leslie Sacks protested, "We have a court order from April allowing us to pray with a Torah, but the Rabbi of the Western Wall Shmuel Rabinowitz has decided to prevent this, without even allowing us to use one of the nearly 100 Torah scrolls provided for the use of worshippers at the Kotel."
