Jerusalem police detain 10 women at Western Wall, after largest monthly gathering yet
Six IDF paratroopers who liberated the wall in 1967 joined the service, to show support for Women of the Wall; Rabbi Susan Silverman, sister of comedian Sarah Silverman, among those detained after the monthly service, after the IDF veterans and media had already left the premise.
Ten women who took part in a monthly prayer service at the Western Wall on Monday were arrested as they were leaving the plaza of the holy site, and taken in for questioning by police. Police waited until most of the hundreds of participants in the service, their supporters, and the media had dispersed to make the arrests. They were released after close to three hours of questioning.
