The Morning Buzz | American Jews Influence Gender Debates in Israel

Women in Israel are continuing to struggle against ultra-Orthodox restrictions on women's prayer at the Western Wall, although a deal may be in sight. The dispute has inspired a great deal of negative attention from the American Jewish community, who tend to sympathize with the women, rather than the ultra-Orthodox rabbis. A majority (53%) of American Jews agree that ultra-Orthodox control of life in Israel is a major problem. (Thanks to Arnie for sending this in!)
