Israel Shelves Plans For Egalitarian Prayer Area At Kosel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announces a freeze on the implementation of a government-approved plan to establish a pluralistic prayer pavilion at the Western Wall.

In a statement, Netanyahu’s office says the prime minister is tasking Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman and Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi with formulating a new plan.

It also says construction work on the southern edge of the Western Wall plaza — where the pluralistic prayer pavilion was slated to be built — would continue uninterrupted.

Charedi lawmakers have repeatedly sought to stymie the 2016 plan while many MK’s voiced their disapproval at the decision. Read more at Times Of Israel.
