Some of the Center for Women & Democracy Delegates took a moment to pray at the Western Wall, in the section designated for women in recent years. Women of all nationalities, ages and backgrounds took their place standing, hand on the wall, for a few minutes or a few hours of prayer. While the men’s side of the Western Wall was filled with conservative Jewish men, the women’s side was Jewish and other faiths, women in religious garb and women in everyday clothes. Colorful, vibrant and overflowing with people, the women’s part of the Western Wall, to the casual observer, stood in stark contrast with the comparatively staid and uniform men’s side.
