“A woman in a prayer shawl is not a criminal.”…….. is an honest statement, in my opinion
I suppose no one shows up in a :bathing suit”…..and not coming in the men” s section
……. hurts the feelings of the worshipers.” Are they honest??
The American rabbis joined the group, carrying flags, Torah scrolls and signs reading: “A woman in a prayer shawl is not a criminal.”
This was done in protest of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party’s attempt to promote a bill that would make it illegal to “conduct a religious ceremony that is not in accordance with local custom and that hurts the feelings of the worshipers.” The bill would place a complete ban on women wearing prayer shawls or phylacteries, doing so resulting in a prison sentence.
