    Timetables badly wanted for the two separate groups of female prayers at the Kotel - HELLO there! This way peace will be maintained and the ladies may pray in their preferred ways. - Personally I belong to the traditionalists, but I do not accept violence of any kind, the least of all from the religious people, whose obligation is to always aspire for peace. I do not approve of this reformist way of female praying as it breaks against the Commandement "women are not to wear men's attires" and offends our conviction of religious decency and therefore seeing these ladies pray next to us the traditionalists is indeed offensive, yet I think that we have to give democracy its and tolerate these reformist ladies in men's attires, but hopefully rather at their appointed praying hours, just to maintain peace at the Kotel. The timetables 'd also be considerate of the traditionalists' feelings. Let these reformist ladies be judged by G-D and not by us, for we 'ld always be aware of whom we are standing before at the Kotel. The reformist ladies alone are responsible for their behavior and breaking G-D's Commandment, so be it and let us not interfere in their choice.
