When they first said, back in 1988, that they just wanted to pray like everyone else at the wall, and were shocked - yes, genuinely shocked - by the reaction they drew, I wondered how it occurred to them to tip off the TV news networks... When they couldn't warm to the idea of reciting prayers at Robinson's arch 'cause it was too inaccessible, I began to question my faith in their pluralism... When they actually preferred to daven far away from the wall, but close to people who would be offended by it, I became a skeptic in the religion of pluralism... But when they were finally handed unlimited, unhindered access to pray right next to the wall...and turned it down, I finally came to the painful conclusion that the religion of pluralism is a myth. These women aren't interested in praying at the Kotel, but rather next to the other people who just happen to frequent it.
