How poignant and sad is this unnecessary provocation of the differences between religious and secular only a week prior to Tishah B'av. For one group of Jews - the Haredi - to claim superiority over all others - non-Haredi - is usually distressing quite distressing. But to have people arrested for wanting to pray, to study and to promulgate Torah, is an embarrassment to us. No wonder that Jewish affiliation and identification rates are dropping all over the world. We have lost relevancy in the eyes of many young Jews, who see no profit for themselves or for world Jewry when women are forcibly denied a place in the Jewish world.
