Subject: Women of the Wall: "Kotel's not our purview"
Thank you for your email reproduced below. May we expand our understanding of your reply by asking --Don't all your members believe that the Kotel is the principal symbol of Jewish sovereignty? That is what your website says.Doesn't the organization have a problem with UNSC 2334's call to end the Israeli occupation of the Kotel that began in 1967?Your website says that "The Western Wall is Judaism's most sacred holy site and the principal symbol of Jewish peoplehood and sovereignty, and Women of the Wall works to make it a holy site where women can pray freely".But UNSC 2334 calls to revoke the Jewish state's sovereignty over the Kotel and to make the Kotel a site where no Israelis or visitors to Israel can pray freely – women or men. Is this no cause of concern for your organization?Women of the Wall is engaged in a 30-year-long struggle to achieve equality for women at the Western Wall. Our group comprises women of many different political persuasions. We respect these differences, and choose not to comment on issues that are outside the purview of our struggle.On Wed, Jan 4, 2017 at 4:57 PM, sddym wrote:
Kind reminderDear WoW leadership,We note that your website ( http://www.womenofthewall.or
g.il/who-we-are/) states that the Western Wall is "the principal symbol of Jewish peoplehood and sovereignty" and refers to "the Jewish people's return to Jerusalem in 1967". In contrast, the new UNSC Resolutionstates that the Security Council does not"recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem" thus effectively treating the entire area to which Israel returned in 1967, including of course the Western Wall, as territory "illegally occupied" by Israel.Please indicate whether your group opposes the new UNSC Resolution and intends to join the effort to rescind same.
