Two weeks ago three members of religious rights group Women of the Wall were arrested for praying at the Western Wall, or Kotel, in Jerusalem. Women of the Wall leader and IRAC Chair, Anat Hoffman had been holding prayers for Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan at the Wall when she was arrested for 'disturbing public order' and placed in prison overnight. Her crime was to sing the Shema and wear a prayer shawl – practices forbidden to women by the Orthodox rabbinate, which controls all services at the site, but not by Israeli law.
