Deputy legal Advisor to the government of Dana Zilber came to the conclusion that the ban on women’s participation in the official ceremony of lighting the Chanukah candles at the Western Wall was an unacceptable manifestation of discrimination on sexual grounds.
In a letter to the chief Rabbi of the Western Wall Shmuel Rabinovich silber stated that he is obliged to ensure the participation of women in the ceremony during the next Hanukkah.
Radio station «Sieves Beth» reported that the letter from the office of the legal adviser of the government was a response to the appeal of the activists from the organization «Women of the wailing Wall» lodged a complaint on discrimination in the conduct of the ceremony.
Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, who is quoted by the website NRG, said that the extremists try to upset the delicate balance around the wailing Wall. He stated that «it is impossible to solve one problem by creating another, even more serious.»
