Pluralist groups warn government over foot-dragging on Western Wall deal

The Reform and Masorti (Conservative) Movements in Israel, together with other pluralist groups, including Orthodox organizations, are reviving a petition to the High Court of Justice against the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, as a warning shot against any effort to water-down the plan to upgrade the pluralist section at the southern end of the Western Wall.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he was asking his bureau chief to find solutions to the intense opposition expressed by the haredi coalition partners to the deal, who have threatened measures against the government unless it is revised.
