10 members of WoW hold Kotel service without incident

Here's a fortunate case where a small group of Women of the Wall went undisturbed:
Ten women from Women of the Wall held a public prayer service at the Western Wall without incident.

The service, during which the women sang and wore tallit prayer shawls and tefillin, was held Wednesday because an American supporter of the group was in town and would not be present for the next monthly service next week, according to Shira Pruce, a spokeswoman for Women of the Wall.

Participants from Women of the Wall gather at the beginning of each Hebrew month for a women’s Rosh Chodesh service at the Western Wall, usually drawing hundreds of women. In recent months, the women have been met with protesters throwing eggs, water, coffee and chairs. Last month, the group was barricaded far from the wall by police, who said the barrier was for the group’s protection.
That was a very stupid thing the police did at the time. It only compounded their image as a bunch of cowards. And it makes no difference whether the Reform custom is kosher or not, any vile protest by the Haredis at the Western Wall only draws attention all concerned would be better off without. Come to think of it, even the police are only helping with what they did. The rabbis calling for this would do well to just tell their congregants not to waste time giving to attention-seekers.
