Woman detained for wearing prayer shawl at Western Wall
Police detained a woman at the Western Wall plaza after she donned a prayer shawl, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.
The woman, from the Women of the Wall organization which campaigns for equal rights at Judaismís holiest site, was brought in for acting against regulations governing the Westen Wall.
The plaza is administered by the Chief Rabbinate, which prohibits women there from wearing prayer shawls or phylacteries, and reading aloud from the Torah, as a contravention of traditional Jewish norms.
