There was no mehitzah because the Muslim and later British authorities wouldn't allow it. It was an orthodox site because there was no such thing as Reform or Conservative Judaism in Israel at that time. It is not an "ultra-orthodox synagogue" because masorti and dati leumi men and women also pray there. We happen to share with the ultra-Orthodox a love of modest behavior, tradition, quietude and gender separation. You want to sit with your girlfriend, go to a Reform "temple."
