Leader of US Reform Movement calls on Netanyahu to implement Western Wall deal

The head of the Reform Movement in the US, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to demonstrate leadership in the ongoing dispute surrounding egalitarian prayer rights at the Western Wall, and implement an agreement approved by the government in January.

Jacobs was speaking after an egalitarian prayer rally at the upper plaza of the Western Wall passed off peacefully Monday afternoon.

Some 200 male and female worshipers from a variety of Jewish backgrounds attended the rally, which was initiated by the Reform Movement along with the Hartman Institute, a pluralist educational organization.
