Egalitarian prayer service in Western Wall plaza given green light

A potentially explosive prayer service planned for Thursday afternoon by the Reform and Masorti (Conservative) Movements in the upper Western Wall plaza has been approved by the legal adviser to the Religious Services Ministry and the Attorney General.

The egalitarian service is a warning shot by the progressive Jewish denominations to the government over the ongoing delay in implementing the cabinet decision in January to create an upgraded, government-recognized egalitarian prayer section at the southern end of the Western Wall.
