Reform movement slams government decision not to revisit Western Wall backtrack

The Reform movement slams the government decision, announced in a response to a High Court petition, not to rethink the suspension of a previously approved plan to enhance a pluralistic prayer area at the Western Wall.

Netanyahu “is continuing his ill-intentioned and disrespectful behavior towards Reform and Conservative Judaism and the Women of the Wall,” says Orli Erex Lehovsky, the lawyer representing the movement at the High Court.

“We will request that the High Court judges obligate the government to respect the right of millions of Jews in Israel and around the world to equal treatment,” she says.
