… During the course of Monday’s morning prayer service for the new month, which WOW stages once a month, the group also managed to smuggle a small Torah scroll into the women’s section, which is prohibited by the regulations governing the Western Wall site. […]

Before the women had read from the Torah, several police officers monitoring the prayer service approached the women and attempted to confiscate the scroll. The women surrounded the prayer platform tightly to prevent the confiscation of the Torah scroll and blocked the police officers from reaching it.

The service carried on and was completed with an additional priestly blessing for the special Mussaf service recited on the new month.
