Dear Sisters and Friends,
This morning (Thursday), the Israeli Supreme Court heard petitions of WOW and other progressive organizations regarding the Kotel Agreement and related issues.
Justices Naor, Meltzer and Danziger presided, demanding straight and to-the-point answers from petitioners’ advocates. The hearing lasted for almost two hours, and in the end, Chief Justice Naor ordered the State to either reinstate the Kotel Agreement or to explain why the Court legally cannot force the State to do so. It appears that the Court views the Kotel Agreement as the feasible solution and seeks solid legal backing to compel the State to implement the agreement.
WOW board members and supporters were among the 200 people present in the courtroom. Sitting in unity with WOW were 10 paratroopers who liberated the Kotel during the 1967 Six Day War.
