Document: Kosel Kedusha Extends Over Its Whole Length

5

A newly published document from exactly a century ago records a psak that the Kosel‘s kedusha extends over its whole length.

Found in the State Archives, the document was drawn up by members of the Committee for the Preservation of the Holy Places, appointed by the Provisional Committee of Palestine Jews established after World War I.

Headed by the non-religious David Yellin, the preservation committee’s members included Rav Zerach Epstein and future Sephardi chief rabbi Rav Ben-Zion Meir Chai Uziel.

Within five days, the committee asserted that the Kosel reaches the Sha’ar Ha’ashpos in the south, which includes the area where attempts are currently being made to establish an egalitarian section.

Ariel Grinbaum of the LIBA Center founded to strengthen the Jewish identity of Israel said, “The Reform attempt to invent a new and detached wall that can be taken over suffered another blow, with the disclosure of the committee’s decision from 100 years ago, reinforcing the clear and correct position that the holy Wall spans the entire length.”

    TO YOU ””YIDS ”” by the way..i have a lower price for my camels the democrats are restricting the amount of camels permitted in a garage where you ”’yids”’ park your Mercedes and volkswagons and store your deeds for homes when you buy homes in germany. HOW DO YOU DO THAT? AND WEAR BLACK CLOTHES AS IF ITS A SYMBOL OF COMMEMORATIONS OF ”GOOD TIMES” IN EUROPE..WHATS WITH YOU ”’YIDS”’.
    I AM A JEW…
    TO ‘AH YID’ AND ‘ANONYMOUS’ YOUR REBUTTAL TO ME IS ”’DRUGS”’? THATS YOUR ASSOCIATION OF SOMEONE HAVING A LITTLE FUN? DRUGS?
    MASHIACH IS GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF WORK SORTING OUT YOUR KIND FROM TRUE JEWS.
    DRUGS SHOULD NOT COME TO MIND IN A TORAH JEW…..MAYBE YOU SHOULD SEPARATE THE DRUGS LIKE PESACH TIME AND START THINKING LIKE A INCLUSIVE ”’JEW”’

    MATZAV PUBLISHES MY REDICULOUS SILLY COMMENTS FOR THE JOKE OF IT…..BUT ALWAYS I GET YOUR REDICULOUS INFANTILE INSECURE WEAK REBUTTALS…..NO ITS NOT FUNNY WHEN YOU BRING DRUGS TO THE TABLE OF GOOD NATURED CHAT. MAYBE YOU SHOULD STUDY SOME MARTIAL ARTS NOT TO BE A PUSSY CAT HIDING….INSTEAD OF SMOKING OUTSIDE YOUR YESHIVOT.
