Deputy education Minister Meir Porush, commenting on the government’s adoption of the «Sharansky compromise», said that since reform Jews «to blame for the assimilation of the Jews of the United States», representatives of the reform and conservative movements do not have the right to pray at the Western Wall and «their place is by the dung gate,» according to the 10-th channel ITV.
We will remind that on 31 January the government approved the project to create additional land for prayers at the Western Wall. Under the proposals, formed the head of the Jewish Agency («Sokhnut») by Natan Sharansky, the activists of the movement «women of the wall» abandon its claim to pray in the tallith and the Tefillin on the existing site reserved for women.
The new site is located in the southern part of the Western Wall, and there will be opened a special pass, which can benefit everyone.
This compromise solution was criticized from different sides. The Ministers Aryeh Deri and David Ausley (both SHAS), Yaakov litzman («Jadot and Torah») and URI Ariel («Bayt Yehudi») voted at a meeting of the government, and the Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich called the decision «a sad day in the life of the Jewish people.»
