Reform, Masorti movements to hold prayer services at upper Western Wall plaza

In a step designed to heap more pressure on the government, progressive Jewish groups have announced that they will be holding further prayer services in the upper plaza of the Western Wall until the government-approved plan for an egalitarian prayer space at the site is implemented.

In June, the Reform and Masorti movements held a mixed gender service at the Western Wall to underline their dissatisfaction with the government’s failure to move forward on this issue, leading to fierce protests from Haredi and hard-line national religious protestors.
