Rabbi Penzner from Israel 2016

Rabbi Penzner participated in the Rosh Hodesh (new month) celebrations at the Kotel today with Women of the Wall in the Women's Section, and with the egalitarian minyan on the public plaza. Despite taunts, loud disruptive whistles, and pushing by some ultra-orthodox women, both services went along peacefully, including reading Torah for Rosh Hodesh. No one was arrested.

The egalitarian minyan was held in protest of the decision not to implement a government agreement to open up a portion of the wall to egalitarian and women's services.
