    1) "Tradition" means something that was normally done in the past. Traditionally, men and women prayed separately. Traditionally, the Temple had separate areas for men and women. These people can make up their own laws if they want to, but they can't deny history, nor can they claim that their innovations were always done. 2) Many Orthodox, find what these people do to be very offensive. The number of Orthodox people praying at the Kosel on any given day far outnumber the few hundred women who come once a month. This article entirely ignores the point that this group is offending alot of people. Their basic attitude seems to be, We can do whatever we want, we don't care if our actions are offensive or not. 3) I pray 3 times daily. I have done so for decades. I never invited the media to photograph myself doing so,nor have I ever seen them photographing others during prayer times. This is a POLITICALLY motivated fight. They may claim otherwise, but their actions speak for themselves.
