  1. At 6:00 am there were so many people that it took 40-50 minutes to get inside and that was only for the amount of time to touch the kever and go!

  2. I think this policy of not showing pictures of women has gone too far. I would venture to guess that more women than men daven at kever rochel and they do deserve recognition
