The leaders of the Reform and Conservative movements in North America are organizing a special trip to Israel later this month to notify Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in person of their strong opposition to any changes in the plan to build a new egalitarian prayer space at the Western Wall. […]
The visit is meant to coincide with the deadline issued by Netanyahu for addressing objections raised by the ultra-Orthodox parties in his coalition to key elements of this plan. […]
The leaders of the Reform and Conservative movements in Israel have warned that they will not accept any significant changes to the original plan. If such changes are forced on them, they have said they will petition the Supreme Court and demand that a prayer space be allocated to them in the existing northern expanse of the Western Wall.
