Reversing an earlier decision, Israel’s Supreme Court ruled that a women’s group cannot pray in an organized service at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. In a 5-4 decision Sunday, the justices gave the government a year to prepare an alternate nearby site, known as Robinson’s Arch. If arrangements are not made within a year, the Women of the Wall will be allowed to pray at the Western Wall, the court ruled.
