The Women of the Wall, seeking to force their concept of prayer at the Western Wall Plaza, should take note of this report by a visitor from abroad to Jerusalem at Pesah 1904:



The men are in their special section and the women in theirs, even though there was no physical barrier (only because of a prohibition by the Ottoman authorities.

Yisrael, WOW wants to hold group prayer on the women's side of the Kotel. That's what it's wanted in the nearly 25 years since its founding. (I should know -- I was a member for about 18 of those years.)

yes, of course. but i was wondering, did those women 109 years ago also say kaddish? in any case, I don't mind WOW's efforts and see them as assisting my campaign for free worship at the Temple Mount.

Israel has ADMITTED it is her own doing! No need to blame Obama? I realize, more and more, that the blame is on the Israelis who lack the RIGHT education. The people elected Benjamin Netanyahu, and the people — for the most part - don’t know any better. Let alone the younger generation who are indoctrinated and are fed the lies of the Arab-Palestinians' rhetoric, with no counter action. So the gullible Jewish soul, has compassion for the suffering/poor Arab-Palestinians. We MUST put the blame where it belongs!
