    When Rabbi Gold received 'State" funding for her Reform Temple it wasn't exactly what it seems. The fact is that most synagogues don't get much money from the State. The local Religious Councils parcel out "something" from time to time, but it usually hardly pays the bills. The bulk of the maintenance is borne by the members, comprising of more in the big cities, and often up to twenty to thirty worshippers if that many in the periphery. Reform and Conserviative groups organize in Community Centers and receive funds from the Misitry of Culture and Sport. The rabbi is part of the staff, as the "director" of that activity. The bills are paid, all of them. Okay, they preesnt a budget to the Center's director for approval. The bottom line is there is a place for everybody and anyone to pray, but for some reason some leaders of some infratstructures turn the issue of "prayer" into something political. Heck, ask a Bratzlaver and he will tell you can recite the Tikkun Klalli on a beach in Tel Aviv in your swimming suit, and Godwon't be displeased at you at all. If that's the case, what's the fuss over some photo-op at the Kotel about? As some Reform and Cionserative rabbis want the "The Wall" and dmure what they are alloted as an insult to their . . .
