Gantz Promises To Allow Mixed [Egalitarian] “Minyan” At Kosel R”L


Chairman of the Blue & White party, MK Benny Gantz announced on Tuesday that if he serves as prime minister, he will push through the state committee’s recommendation for the Kosel, permitting egalitarian prayer. This is the plan being opposed by the chareidi parties upon instruction of Gedolei Yisrael Shlita.

During his address to the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency for Israel, Gantz stated, “as prime minister, I will be in contact with all streams of Judaism and will promote the implementation of the Kosel Plan. I intend to work with all the relevant countries to ensure the security of Jews around the world.”

Gantz also touched on security matters, citing recent statements by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-General Aviv Kochavi, who spoke of the Iranian threat and Tehran’s determination to build a nuclear bomb. Gantz added that just as he was able to prepare the IDF for its challenges, he remains well-aware of the strategic challenges faced today.” Gantz emphasized the diplomatic option as the first option, but remains cognizant of the military option, which would be on the table.”

  1. Here’s a thought. What if our dear Arab cousins would not interfere with Jewish prayer on the Har HaBayis. This circus would be taking place not in the plaza in front of the Kosel, it would be taking place, even more energetically, on the Har HaBayis. It’s tragic that we aren’t davening in the Shaar HaShamayim mamosh, but can you imagine the chillul Hashem אנדרלמוסיה that would be happening?

  2. Ha! Just as he prepared the IDF….what a walking joke. To anyone who was in closed army circles while Gantz was serving as Chief of Staff, it is known that he was always AGAINST all the operations to go into Gaza, for example, preferring instead to avoid conflict; likewise in regards to various other operations which ended up being successful, where he himself was OPPOSED to them! And guess what operations he was in favor of? Hardly any ones that were good for the state of Israel from a Torah perspective…
