that it's a vocal minority that protests, and the vast middle usually compromises between the "differeing points of view", so, and this newspper pointed out not long ago, the Southern Wall is the preferred venue for many Conservative Jews, and even some Halachically Observant Jews, albeit, it may cost some, the what to pay is well worth the peace and quiet. Without knowing what really happens, it is possible to set up tables and chairs after services and have the Seudat Mitzvah too.providing the party clean up after themselves. It's clear that the Reform movement choses to pray at the Western Wall to promote their agenda, not to "pray". As another talkecker mentioned,if they were praying at Beit Daniel in Tel Aviv, no newspaper, except somebody from inside the the Reform instrastructre would be there to make sure there were pictures for their newsletter. At the Wall, well . . . it becomes a media event. Indeed, the fewer Haredi protestes that come, will perhaps make it less of a media event and perhaps the women will either use the South Wall, or pray at their synagogues, with talitot and t'ffillin and it will be as "normal" for their form of Judaism as Halachic Observance is is for Haredim.
