1st of Hebrew Month Adar at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel
Jerusalem, Israel. 27th February, 2017. Women of the Wall are herded into an enclosure at the farthest edge of the Western Wall as police create a buffer zone to prevent violence on the first of the Hebrew month of Adar. Orthodox Jews object to Women of the Wall donning prayer shawls and phylacteries in defiance of Orthodox Jewish monopoly reserving these practices only for men.
