Kosel Heritage Foundation Not Opposed To Adding Chareidim As Respondents To The Court

Jewish women, members of Women for the Wall, walk near ultra-Orthodox Jewish men in Jerusalem's Old CityThe Kosel Heritage Foundation reportedly told the High Court of Justice that it is not opposed to permitting chareidi Women For the Wall to submit their response as a respondent in the case. Women For the Wall (WfW) contacted the Rav of the Kosel and Holy Sites Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, asking to respond to the court as well since they feel the actions of the Women of the Wall will negatively impact them as frum women wishing to daven at the Kosel.

The heritage foundation’s legal advisor, attorney Erez Ben-David has accepted the request, including the WfW response to the High Court in the pending matter of the egalitarian prayer area at the holy site. The WoW and others siding with them did not object to permitting the chareidi women to respond, leaving the determination to the justices hearing the case.
