Letter (Aug. 28): Archaic thinking

Archaic thinking

Dear Editor:

The issue of women praying at the remnants of a Sacred Temple, destroyed in 2002 AD, is a disturbing problem. The Israeli courts ruled that women can pray anywhere they wish. Five percent of the Israeli citizens, who are Orthodox, say to hell with any legal decisions, we Orthodox will decide what is best. By civil disobedience, we will cancel the court orders and attack women, with the radical Jews’ views. Not second class, but no class!
