    The "western wall" as it is usually called, is The retaining wall for the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount Is the holiest place on earth according to ALL streams of Judaism. Jews have prayed at the western wall since the destruction of the our Temple. The significance of the western wall is its location being very close to where the first and second Temples stood. Jews are commanded to pray towards the Temple mount. The significant thing about the western wall is its vicinity to the temple mount. The wall is a inanimate object made of stones. It is a commandment for Jews to hold reverence for the Temple because it is the House of the lord. But with that being said. Jews dId not pray TO the temple. Jews prayed IN the temple TO HaShem. When The "women of the wall" hold such reverence for the kotel instead of the reverence for G-d they are not only being hypocritical; they are practicing soft idolatry. Stones have 0 power. G-d IS the ONE who should be praised. Jews pray to HaShem alone. In other words. Women of the wall = Ignorant women changing and distorting Biblical commandments practicing soft idolatry. Women for HaShem = Good Jewish Women. please post. Thank you and happy holidays.
