Women of the Wall denied access to Kotel

    Some 250 members of the Women of the Wall group were prevented from praying at the Western Wall on Monday morning.

    According to reports, between 5000 and 7000 young strictly Orthodox women arrived early at the women’s section of the Wall in order to obstruct the Women from approaching the holy site.

    In an effort to keep the peace, the police halted the Women at a distance from the site, where they normally pray on Rosh Chodesh (the beginning of every month).

    More than 1000 strictly Orthodox men also mounted a protest against the Women, shouting “Get out, Nazis” and throwing eggs and water bottles.

    Women of the Wall chairwoman Anat Hoffman said she was "surprised" by the protest.

    In April, an Israeli judge ruled that the Women of the Wall were permitted to pray at the wall.
