Police on Thursday detained a woman who arrived at the Western Wall plaza wearing a talit (prayer shawl) reserved for males according to orthodox Judaism.

According to a 2001 law, it is illegal for women to perform religious practices traditionally done by men in Orthodox Jewish practice at the Western Wall, such as reading from a Torah scroll, wearing tefillin or a tallit, or blowing a shofar.
