The Women of the Wall organization smuggled in a Sefer Torah into the women’s section of the Kosel on Monday morning for the monthly provocation they carry out each Rosh Chodesh.

At the same time, over a thousand men and women davened Schacharis of Rosh Chodesh Shevat as part of the gathering that the Headquarters for the Preservation of the Kedusha of the Kosel organizes every month.

“It was moving to see the many hundreds of tzadikos who came from throughout Israel despite the freezing cold,” Bezalel Zinni, head of the organization, said. “But it’s very painful that they need to deal with the harsh images of the provocations that a small group of extremist lawbreaking women creates – who again smuggled in a Sefer Torah into the Kosel plaza contrary to the law.”

“We call on the Rav of the Kosel to put a stop to this disgrace and to act decisively to end these provocations, including restraining orders from the site as is customary for those who violate the law in every place.”

  1. “…it’s very painful that they need to deal with the harsh images of the provocations that a small group of extremist lawbreaking women creates – who again smuggled in a Sefer Torah into the Kosel plaza contrary to the law.”
    Somehow, it is a bit strange that “smuggling” a sefer torah into the plaza is worthy of so much attention. This group wants publicity and sure enough, there are those that willingly provide it to them. Perhaps ignoring them would be a better long-term strategy.

  2. These people I’m sure never bother going to krias hatorah at other times. They probably don’t even usually daven.
    It’s only for the attention of their cause.
    I bet if everyone just ignored them, they’d probably stop coming after 2-3 months.

  3. I know of a certain city where orthodox women wanted to establish a prayer group. The rabbonim in town all agreed to ignore them and they soon lost interest.

  4. They “pray” for the devision of Jerusalem with the so-called “palestinians”. They should be deported from Israel, not just the Kotel.

  5. If you daven even one word on the Temple Mount, the police will have you in handcuffs in 10 seconds and will carry you away. When it comes to protecting Jewish rights where are the police?? Eating Donuts?

  6. these woe men are provocative. they do not believe in G-d, they do not keep the Torah, their purpose is to be provocative and gain headlines, which they do.

    put them in jail with the peleg boys….

  7. Whether these women are ignored or not ignored, they still don’t stop their provocation.

    Their organization should be legally disbanded; and if they don’t stop their provocation, they should be given long prison sentences.
