Rabinowitz told The Jerusalem Post in an exclusive interview on Friday that the Women of the Wall organization are forcefully imposing their opinions on others and he begged that they stop.
"I am hurting. Hurting and crying over what happened here today. It wasn’t for this Kotel that we prayed. We don’t want a kotel of disagreement," Rabinowitz told the Post, in the wake of the Friday morning protest against the Women of the Wall's first legal prayer service.
at the Western Wall in Jerusalem against the Women of the Wall organization ended on Friday morning with the arrest of three haredi men
suspected of disturbing the peace, as well as two police officers who
suffered light injuries and were treated at the scene. A large number of
security forces were at the holy site, attempting to create a human
barrier between the men and women's sections.
