The plan to create a new egalitarian space at the Western Wall could be stopped dead in its tracks within the next two weeks if one man remains true to his convictions.

For the plan to move ahead, two key cabinet members must sign a set of regulations providing detailed instructions for its implementation. Those cabinet members are Religious Services Minister David Azoulay and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.

According to the government decision, announced two weeks ago, these regulations must be signed no later than 30 days after the plan is approved.

… Asked whether Azoulay intends to sign the regulations putting the plan into effect, his spokesman told Haaretz he had not yet decided. “The issue is being examined by the legal department of the ministry,” said Daniel Bar, his press adviser.
