Contentious mixed gender prayer service in Western Wall plaza planned

The Reform and Masorti (Conservative) Movements announced on Wednesday that they are set to stage a contentious mixed-gender prayer service in the upper plaza of the Western Wall on Thursday.

Members of the Women of the Wall (WOW) prayer rights group will also be participating in the prayer service, although WOW as an organization will not be formally praying in the egalitarian service since the organization is not a mixed prayer group.

A spokesperson for WOW said however that the event has its full backing.
