"In its decision, the Council [of the haredi-controlled state-funded Chief Rabbinate] rules that as long as the Chief Rabbinate has not delivered its decision on this matter, no changes should be made and the Western Wall must be treated like the sanctity of any synagogue."
…Monday, the Chief Rabbinate Council released the interim decisions made at a discussion on Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky's outline, which seeks to divide the Western Wall plaza into three equal sections: Men, women and a mixed public.
"In its decision, the Council rules that as long as the Chief Rabbinate has not delivered its decision on this matter, no changes should be made and the Western Wall must be treated like the sanctity of any synagogue," the Council said in a statement.…
[T]he Council said it was waiting for the decision of Sharansky and Deputy Minister of Religious Services Eli Ben-Dahan on the matter before making a decision.…
And what is Sharansky saying about the current situation? According to Ha'aretz, this:
Sharansky suggested that women be allowed to wear colorful "feminine" prayer shawls, and pray aloud, but not be permitted to don phylacteries or read from the Torah.
In other words, Women of the Wall should be allowed to do what it was allowed to do last year and a decade ago, with the added ability to pray out loud.
Sharansky wants this 'compromise' to remain in force until the prayer area at the Kotel is expanded to create an egalitarian section – a process that despite his rosey claims could easily take years if not decades to achieve. And Sharansky wants this despite the fact that an Israeli court has definitively ruled that women can legally put on tefillin (phylacteries), were a tallits (prayer shawls), read from the Torah and pray out loud at the Kotel right now, and that Israel's police and rabbis are forbidden by law from interfering.
So after decades of harassment and a complete ban against all of these things, Sharansky wants Women of the Wall to compromise and give up almost all of their newly earned freedoms.
And what would haredim give in return? After all, they cannot legally stop Women of the Wall from holding a complete prayer service at the Kotel right now.
That is not spelled out by Sharansky, but the answer is still clear – haredim will refrain from holding demonstrations against Women of the Wall and will refrain from trying to block Women of the Wall's access to the Kotel.
As for the haredi rioting and haredi attacks against Women of the Wall, Sharansky's compromise is utterly silent but presumes haredi leaders will somehow control the violence – an unlikely outcome because haredi leaders pay no penalty for that violence.
