Hecklers blew whistles for close to an hour during the Women of the Wall's monthly Rosh Hodesh Service in the women's section of the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Friday.

During brief points in the service, the Women of the Wall members tried to embrace the whistle blowers, by putting their arms around them and making them part of the singing.

One angry Women of the Wall member threw a bottle of water at the whistle blowers.
