Western Wall feud persists: Non-Orthodox worshipers clash with haredim

Ultra-Orthodox protesters clashed with Reform and Conservative Jewish worshipers who arrived at the Western Wall plaza for a prayer service on Thursday morning.

Members of the Women of the Wall group that seeks the secure women’s right to pray at the holy site managed to bring a Torah scroll into the complex where women are forbidden to do as such. 

Army Radio on Thursday cited Rabbi Gilad Kariv, head of the Reform movement in Israel, as saying non-Orthodox activists were planning to intensify their actions in the contested campaign for egalitarian prayer rights.
