The Masorti Foundation for Conservative Judaism in Israel

On Tisha B’Av, shocking events took place at the Egalitarian Kotel.  People who came to pray peacefully at the only part of Kotel where men and women can pray together, were verbally assaulted and a gender partition was set up to interfere with the prayers of Masorti and others at the Family Kotel.
