Chief rabbis to draw up alternative deal for pluralistic prayer area at Western Wall

Chief Rabbis David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef will reportedly draft a new, watered down plan for creating a non-Orthodox, pluralist prayer space at the Robinson’s Arch area of the Western Wall, after expressing intense opposition to the plan agreed at the end of January with the non-Orthodox denominations and the Women of the Wall organization.

The agreement would dramatically overhaul the current prayer platform at the Robinson’s Arch area and create a committee including representatives from the Reform and Conservative movements and WOW to administer the site.
