Jerusalem Police on guard as ultra-Orthodox plan fresh protests against Women of the Wall
Women of the Wall to hold monthly prayer service on Sunday, despite failure of Religious Services Ministry to reach regulations on 'local custom' at Western Wall; threatening letters sent to chief rabbinate and Western Wall rabbi warning them to allow women to pray as they choose or face harm.
Jerusalem District Police are preparing for another round of confrontations at the Western Wall next Sunday, as tensions continue to escalate surrounding the Women of the Wall's demand for equal worship at Judaism's holiest site.
