and place they want, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said on
Speaking in a celebratory plenum session, Edelstein cited
disputes over women’s prayer at the Kotel and Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount,
and expressed hope that they will be solved by next Jerusalem Day.
of us must make sure that the city of three religions, which we are proud of for
having freedom of worship, should be open to every Jew in every place that they
want to pray,” he stated.

be sensitive, but our joint goal should be to allow this freedom, because
without it, we will not have one Jerusalem.”
