Reform Violate Israeli Law At Southern Western Wall After ‘Shocking’ Kabalat Shabbat

31

JERUSALEM (VINnews) — The reform movement has made numerous efforts to gain a footing at the Western Wall, including the provocative prayer services conducted by the Women of the Wall every Rosh Chodesh in the women’s section in violation of the law regarding the sanctity of the site. Currently the reform and conservative movements are trying to take control of the Southern Western Wall site, known as Ezrat Yisrael. Despite the fact that on numerous days the place is deserted and there is no initiative to conduct daily prayer there, the reform movements insist on conducting egalitarian prayers at the site.

It should be noted that the Kotel arrangement which would have given the reform and conservative movements authorization to pray at the site was never ratified by the Israeli government and therefore the site was never designated for egalitarian prayer. Yet the reform movement has illegally decided that it can conduct prayers there and even far more radical performances involving female singing and dancing in an inappropriate manner.

Last week the egalitarian movements held a Kabbalat Shabbat at the Southern Western Wall. Even though the service was prior to Shabbat and did not involve direct desecration of Shabbat, it included a female chazan as well as female singers. The chareidim were particularly appalled by the mixed dancing and atmosphere of revelry which do not conform with the sanctity of the Western Wall

Thus when Rosh Chodesh came and the reform elements were once again determined to conduct prayers at the site, chareidi and religious Zionist students came to protest the illegal move.

The reform movement were spit out and outlawed by all Gedoli Yisroel going back 200 years.

They have zero respect for the Kosel.
Zero respect for Orthodox Jews.
Zero respect for the Torah.

Generally speaking a Reform Jew lives a life like a full fledge Goy.

Is this really going to stop them? This is just letting out frustration and making noise. Remember the hundreds of frum women and girls who went to just daven at the Kosel as a protest against the reform shtick at the Kosel? That was more powerful than all this useless noise. Do we want to vent our frustration or do we want to put a stop to this chillul Hashem? Do it with sechel. That might influence some people more than screaming and whistling..

We Cheredim are about 12% of Jews. what should our relationship be with the other 82% ?? hate? derision? violence? or dialogue, tolerance? respect that they may have different views than us?

If we fight and hate 82% of Jews how can we demand Goyim to tolerate, respect us??? we different then they are and we acpect them to tolerate us…..

we charedim need to learn to live peacefully with people that think and pray differently than us

Fighting amongst Jews sends a message to the world watching us, how can Mesiach ever come when Jews are not at peace with each other?

The charadim should put pages from the reform player book in the sherutim so people can wipe their two chases with, keeping up the mitzvah of wiping out amalek and his supporters.

Someone needs to reform the Reform Movement.
I once asked a current leader of the Reform movement, “Where did you first learn about the Reform movement?”
He told me, “When I was a kid, I was very unruly and rebellious, so my parents sent me to Reform school. That was my first exposure to the Reform movement.”

So how the heck have we reached the point where religious men are tearing up prayer books?

The chareidim and chardalniks got it backwards. All they accomplish is to alienate the Reform and secular from yiddishkeit.
First: designate the area as being for Reform, Egalitarian, and Christians. By mixing Christians into the formula you will have placed Reform outside the boundary of yiddishkeit.
Secondly: Violence just alienates them. Approach them with a cholent or other foods. Make them feel welcome and they’ll be attracted to yiddishkeit. A free lunch goes a long way. Ask any Chabad Sheliach. I had the experience with a missionary on a plane that I almost converted to yiddishkeit by giving him my lunch which wasn’t as kosher as it should have been. The christian world, which used to threaten with burning at the stake, has long changed to the free lunch method as it was far more effective.

As far as WOW, I don’t understand why the frum dropped the ball on court proceedings years ago.

It is Israeli folk dancing and people were doing it in Munkach a hundred years ago. Anybody who doesn’t like it can walk away. It is not as if it is at the Kotel courtyard where Chareidi Jews are Davening.

That dancing looked interesting. Each one to his own. It is democracy or Teliban. Look at the Rebbes court these days and NOTICE HOW FAST FREEDOM CAN EVAPORATE
