Walls Within Community

By Vanessa Ochs

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

The author discusses the conflict and strife between the ultra-orthodox and non-ultra-orthodox communities in Israel. Noting an Israeli High Court decision allowing women to pray aloud in groups at the Western Wall, the author frames the conflict in political and spiritual terms. She calls for the creation of compassionate, respectful and durable bonds between different groups of Jews.
