The answer to the Women of the Wall provocation

Tens of boys and girls from the National Religious camp came to worship at the Southern area of the Western Wall, which is slated to serve Reform and Conservative Jews who wish to conduct alternative services. The prayer at the site was a response to the Women of the Wall's provocation in smuggling a Torah scroll into the Western Wall and reading from it.

Beit El Rabbi Shlomo Aviner told Arutz Sheva that "the entire wall is holy from end to end, it is the wall of the Temple Mount, the holiest place to Jewry. It is imperative that all Jewish girls come to strengthen the holiness. Even secular women who come to the Kotel expect to find holiness and not all kinds of weird shows."
