Rabbii Yoffe and he the rest of Reform and Conservative, and, the Orhodox somehow attach a significance to he "the "Wall" that i"kvodo bimkomo" is there, but her have been dissenters, like Leibovitz, and oheres. As othersin these Talk Backs its a smokescreen for the Temle Mount which nobody wants to discuss. There is a spce hat is alloted to Jews who disagree with standard Halachic practice, and here is not reason that Rabbi Anat and her friends can use tht space. No Orthodox rabbi would bother her,or any other Jew who prefers "some form of Judaism". That being said, I wonder what might happen if a woman Kleizmer band were to appear at the sgravesite of Rabbi Shimon ba Yochai under the aegis of he Refrom or Conservative momements. After all if over half a million Jews converrge on the sie on Lag B'Omer that would demonstate something. Then again, Kabalism and he the other mystical apsectsof Jusaims have been cast away from most of the Reform and Conseratve "theology" long ago, in facore of an hisorical, rational, humanistic based faith where Judams has become a patch work of ethics and enthnicity with a few customs and ceremonies to make it look like a religion.
