The Western Wall is just that -- a wall. It was not part of the Temple, but surrounded the Temple Mount. When we look at pre-1920s pictures of the wall, we see men and women crowded together in prayer. The Wall belongs to all Jews. Why has the government allowed it to become an ultra-Orthodox synagogue? It is time to put an end to the Ultra-Orthodox co-opting Jewish national symbols as their private property. More power to you and other women who have the courage to demand what is theirs by right.
