Quote of the Day

Apparently when Netanyahu spoke of ‘all’ Jews in November 2015, he forgot that women make up half of all Jews. No Israeli Prime Minister has the right to take away Torah from half of all Jews. It is our hope that Netanyahu will not ban women from reading Torah, however if he does bend to the pressure of the Haredi parties, Women of the Wall will continue to read Torah in the women's section of the Kotel. Even if we must hide our Torah scroll and smuggle it past the guards, we will do so just as Jews have been forced to do so many times before us in exile

  -- Women of the Wall spokesperson, upon the news that Netanyahu will support the Haredi position and not allow the WoW group to read from the Torah at the Kotel..

yes, women make up half of Jewry, and half of all humans, but they surely cannot claim to speak for 50% of Jewry. Just because 50% of all Jews are women does not mean 50% want that right to read from the Torah at the Kotel. Many, very many, do not agree with WoW on this. Let's also not forget how small of a group they actually are. They are misrepresenting the situation with their self-appointment as representation for all women...

  1. According to WoW, any woman who doesn't want to read from the Torah is secretly a man. So yes, 100% of Jewish women want to read from the Torah.

  2. And of course, women can and do read from the Torah regularly, there is even a section of the Kotel designated for this - the Ezrat Yisrael section, and Reform and Conservative (and even a few Orthodox) women read from the Torah there or have Bat Mitzvas there almost every Monday and Thursday.

    Problem with WOW is not that they want to read the Torah at the Kotel, it is that they want to read the Torah at the Kotel in an area where it disturbs the other people (both men and women) in that area.

  3. These whack job women don't even know any Torah; they have one purpose and that is to disrupt the Orthodox way of Torah and the eventual dismantling of Torah Judaism. Everyone who is not one of them understands this by now. Instead of majority rule, they believe in minority rule and only what they say is law; such are the ways of those fighting halacha and Torah.
