Women of Wall to continue reading Torah at Western Wall despite deal, group says

The Women of the Wall organization brought a Torah scroll into the Western Wall women’s prayer section for its prayer service for the new month on Friday, leading to accusations by the administrator of the site Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz that the group violated the recent agreement for creating a new pluralist prayer space.

A deal reached between WOW and the non-Orthodox denominations with the government last week will create a large prayer space designated for non-Orthodox or pluralist service at the Robinson’s Arch area at the southern end of the Western Wall.
