    The non-Orthodox movmentts are getting a place 24/7 where they can hold services, of all kinds without the supervision of the Chief Rabbinate, and now the problem is the "venue"! Frankly the idea of two approaches one beside each other actually is good for the alternatives to Halachaic Obeservance. Someone curious enough to explore Refrom or Conservative prractice can decide to "check it out", and if it suits them, they can become part of the Refrom or Conservative group in their community. It may take a while, but it these movements were serious about expanding their infulence, that would be the way. One hopes that the non-Halachic Observing Jews would see the possiblitity, instead of continuing their efforts to "fright the Orthodox". Better to persuade the Israeli public that their approach is . . . whatever and we'll see what happens. If indeed, the public is given a opportunity to see both sides of Jewish Observance for themselves without violence, or police actions, each side worshipping God, rather than lookin' for photo ops. We will all be better off.
