The Women of the Wall, a New Israel Fund-backed group of women who insist on praying at the Western Wall while donning accessories that are traditionally worn by men, including a tallit (prayer shawl) and tefillin (phylacteries), succeeded in angering many Orthodox Jews in the course of the past year.

A couple of girls from Hevron decided to comment on this light-heartedly with their Purim costumes, by dressing up as members of the odd group.
