Western Wall Rabbi Says Women Will Not Be Arrested for Praying Kaddish at Kotel

The rabbi assured the agency chairman, Natan Sharansky, that despite a recent warning by Jerusalem police, women would not be arrested for saying the mourner's prayer at the wall; women's group says remarks prove that it's the rabbi who 'calls the shots.'

Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky met Thursday with Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, chairman of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, to express his shock at a letter sent by police warning that women would be arrested for reciting the Kaddish mourner’s prayer at the Western Wall.
