Sharansky: ‘All Jewish communities need to feel at home in Israel’

Against the background of the struggle over the Western Wall, Chairman of the Jewish Agency Natan Sharansky said on Thursday that it was critical that all Jews feel a sense of attachment to Israel in light of challenges the entire Jewish people face.

His comments come following the continued delay to the implementation of the government decision passed in January to create a state-recognized pluralist prayer space at the southern end of the Western Wall.

The delay has been caused by intense haredi opposition to the deal.
