Reform Movement holds first official prayer service at Western Wall

Dozens of Rabbis from the Reform Movement in Israel and North America joined together for the first official morning prayer service on Thursday held in the area of the Western Wall formally designated to be used for non-orthodox worship.

Women and men joined together in the prayer service and participated in the reading of the traditional reading of the Thursday Torah portion.

Movement leaders and prayer participants recited the shehecheyanu blessing, a prayer traditionally recited at a time of the celebration of a special occasion.
