Rosh Chodesh: Women of the Wall Drowned Out By Large Chareidi Presence at Kosel

women-of-the-wall[Photos below.] In the ongoing dispute regarding women’s prayer at the Kosel, this morning’s Rosh Chodesh tefillos at the Kosel was a victory for chareidim, as chareidi women gathered  to daven en masse, while the Women of the Wall provocateurs who insist on praying while donning talleisim and tefillin showed up in much smaller numbers. As a result, police did not let the Women of the Wall into the women’s section next to the Wall, but fenced off a small area at the entrance to the Kosel Plaza for them to pray in.

According to Voice of Israel public radio, about 150 Women of the Wall came to the Plaza this morning, but police prevented them from praying there, although they had previously set aside an area for them within the women’s section. Police said that there was no room left for the Women of the Wall, because 5,000 chareidi ulpana students had showed up and filled the Plaza, according to Arutz Sheva. In addition, hundreds of chareidi men were present.

  1. Boruch Hashem! A true kiddush Hashem!

    Hashem, please look how far we care about Your Honor. Thank you.

    Thank you.

  2. one women was wearing talit and tefilin but forgot to take out her earphones! she was dancing and making mishigeh, what a disgrace

  3. B”H. But I saw pictures of people holding posters.Why was a tefila gathering politicized? Iy”H Moshiach will here by next rosh chodesh, but wouldn’t it be incredible if not just the crazy hecklers stay away, but it’s kept completely apolitical…

  4. The life of the Al HaGeula was saved by Zionists. That’s how he escaped the Holocaust. Its obvious that when it came to saving his own life, he knew exactly what to do. However, in advising everyone else, there’s another message.
    By the way, when the Al HaGeula was in Yerusahalyim from 1945 to 1947 did he ever go to Kosel? Or was the Kosel not holy enough even then?
    The Dushinsky Rebbes, both Rav of the Aideh Hacharedis, and all other Yerushalmis have always and coninue to go to the Kosel.
    How do you explain that?

  5. It seems to me that Insider is an outsider. How right the Holy mechaber of the Al Hagulah was, as we see the current situation in our holy land, where everythng holy is being trampled o. Mr ‘Imsider’ should do teshva for his terrible comments.

  6. To #9:
    The life of the Al HaGeulah was NOT saved by Zionists. It was saved by Agudah activists in Hungary who, when they heard about the Kastner train, managed through great effort to arrange for a number of rabbonim, including the Al HaGeulah, to be on that train.

    I have no idea what the Al HaGeulah did or did not say about the Kosel, but it’s irrelevant to how his life was saved.

  7. It’s what you call “DAVKE”

    As one said: Do they really put Teffilin on everyday? Do they wear a wig/shaitel/snood? Do they actually go to sleep with their “yalmaka”
    ETC… … …

    All we can do is? Takeover the kosel? NO:
    Daven for Moshiach.
    Let them pick and choose while we daven.

  8. while I have no personal objections to the WOW (I feel everyone has the right to practice as they please) I was truly impressed by the APPROPRIATE response of all these Bais Yaacov girls. What a kiddush HaShem in their method of protest !!

    Davening !! Wonderful !!

  9. To say that the Al HaGeulah was saved by Rudolf Kastner ym”s is like saying that Adolf Eichmann ym”s saved the Al HaGeulah since Adolf Eichmann authorized the so-called Kastner Train to leave Nazi occupied Hungary.

    So perhaps we should all give a big Yasher Koach to Adolff Eichmann for saving everyone on the Kastner Train, since Eichmann is the one who allowed that train to exist and allowed it to escape Hungary.

    Of course that makes as much sense as thanking Kastner. Kastner was a rasha merusha who is directly responsible for the murder of 600,000 Hungarian Jews. He knew what the Nazis were doing to the Jews and he still hid that information from the Jews so they could all get killed while he saved his family and zionist cronies with his train. All his family was on that train and 90+% of the rest were zionists. That’s why he was okay with killing the other 600,000 Jews. So he could save his own skin. Of course for some big money he was happy to sell a small number of seats on the train to some rabbis so he could claim it wasn’t all his family and cronies.

    Not only did Kastner not tell the Jews what he knew the Nazis were taking and killing the Jews, but he was a good friend of Adolff Eichmann and other Nazis. AFTER THE WAR when the Nazis were on trial in Nuremberg, Kastener DEFENDED THE NAZIS and saved the Nazis lives from being executed by the Americans.

  11. Is it possible that our response as women should be to take our own tefillos more seriously? Of course, women who are raising children should not stand all day with an open siddur. But even if we are patur, do we appreciate davening for what it can be? Can there be time for exercise, simchos, and baking extra cakes, and no time to face our Creator? Is our bentching up to par? Is davening while on a treadmill a source of inspiration? Is our heart where it should be? Do we know what we’re saying?
    Is it possible that if the tefillos in our ezras noshim, with no chatter or interuption, were consistently inspiring, we could win some misguided WOW over to our side? Could it be that since we may be lax in using the opportunity to daven wholeheartedly as we should, the koach hatefilla is being grabbed by the sitra acher? Rather than rant and rave, perhaps we should, from a distance, join the Bais Yaakov girls at the Kosel in their most meaningful protest by improving the quality of our own tefila and silence the WOW by taking back the koach of true tefilla to the tzad hakedusha. Thank you for reading.

  12. Shlomo Hamelech prooved three thousand years ago that the real mother will sacrifice and pray for the benefit of her child while the fraud will Prey at the Wall
