PM says he supports both status quo and compromise at Western Wall

Following reports that Netanyahu was set to oppose the use of Torah scrolls in the women’s section of the Western Wall, his office says the premier is committed to both finding a solution and upholding the status quo.

“The prime minister is committed to preserving the status quo at the Western Wall. The prime minister is also committed to the process led by the cabinet secretary to formulate an agreed-upon plan for prayer at the Western Wall, for all the streams of Judaism,” a statement from his office says.
