    Yeah, when they enter the square before they regale themsleves as they see God "touch" Man as the drama of Creation enfolds at the Sistine Chapel dressed in shorts and dressed in tank tops. Right?! But because they imagine they are Jewish women at the "holiest place" in Jewish life they can trash our most sacred values. One hopes that the Reform movement learns how to live with the reality of the place, and the Haredim understand that they are not really serious about Judaism anyway. Eventually, I figure they will either take thier business to the Western Wall, as many Conservative Jews do, or smply worship as they do in their own "houses of prayer" accoridng to thier own "customs and ceremonies" without the benefit of camera and videos that prove they are . . . the vanguard of Jewish life in the twentieth centruy.

    from the article: Women of the Wall, 1; Haredi protests, 0: Is Israel's religion-state status quo facing upheaval?
