A Jewish woman was arrested at the Western Wall on Wednesday morning for praying while wearing a talit. The woman was taking part in a 'Women of the Wall' Rosh Hodesh service in the women's section of the Kotel. Police were alerted after the women requested to read from the Torah. The decision to arrest the woman was based on a High Court ruling under which public coming to the Western Wall must dress according to the customs of the site, police said.
