Thousands of people, both supporters and opponents of the judicial reforms, came to the Western Wall this morning (Sunday) for a special "prayer for the unity of the people."
Among the participants are Rabbi Yaakov Medan, dean of the Har Etzion Yeshiva, Rabbi Re'em HaCohen, MK Matan Kahana, protest leader Shikma Schwartzman-Bressler, National Unity party chairman Benny Gantz, Yael Shevach, the widow of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, and others.
The thousands intend to march together from the Western Wall to the Knesset building on Kaplan Street, which has been blocked off by the police.
Gantz was also greeted with chants of protest from a 'Brothers in Arms' protestor who said: "Don't be cowards. Lie on the fence with us. A pro-reform activist told Gantz: "If you start your military coup - people will walk around in the streets with weapons."
The Knesset is holding a discussion on the bill to reduce the Supreme Court's ability to use the 'reasonableness standard' against the government in preparation for the final votes to pass the bill tomorrow.
