A Tactical Win for Women of the Wall on Rosh Chodesh Kislev


koselIt would appear the Women of the Wall (WoW) organization is becoming wiser as it remains tenacious in its yearning to gain equal rights at the Kosel. This morning, 2 Rosh Chodesh Kislev 5774, WoW supporters turned out early for the Rosh Chodesh event and thereby succeeded in securing a dominant position in the ezras noshim.

The WoW delegation of a few hundred arrived ahead of the announced time and the thousands of seminary girls expected did not materialize as only a few hundred frum women were on hand. WoW women numbered over 500 according to all estimates.
