The Women of the Wall prayer rights activist group were holding its monthly prayer service at the Western Wall on Wednesday, and the Jerusalem Police  said there were around 250 activists present.

The WoW group was forced to congregate in a different area because the women's section of the Western Wall was too packed, the police said.   



Last month, thousands of haredi schoolgirls filled the women’s section entirely, preventing WoW from holding its service there. The group had to conduct it instead at the entrance to the Western Wall plaza complex, away from the wall.
