Who is extremist? The women wearing talitot? Or the men who should stop focussing on what's happening on the other side of the mechitzah? This debate isn't about respecting other religions...we are all Jews. This is our religion. Our wall. In America this debate is getting tiresome. Women wear talitot in Reconstructionist and Conservative shuls here; hardly anyone notices or cares. Hashem hasn't turned His back on us. What are people afraid will happen if we let Jews dress and pray as they choose?
