  1. The Orthodox, G-d love them, do wonderful things, and I have so much respect for them, but they did not “corner the market ” on Judaism Ever Jew should be welcomes to pray at the Kotel. It was not segregated before 1967 by religious sect, and it should remain a place where religious tolerance is respected for all worshipers, regardless of their political agenda, or sexual orientation. They may be seen as ” imperfect, ” but they are still Jews. Besides, the Kotel is public domaine right?
