Members of the liberal Jewish religious group Women of the Wall wearing phylacteries and the “Tallit” shawl, traditional Jewish prayer apparel for men, pray at the plaza near the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, in Jerusalem’s Old City on August 7, 2013 marking the first day of the Jewish month of Elul. Dozens of policemen protect the women as Ultra-Orthodox Jews protest against the woman prayer. AFP PHOTO/ MENAHEM KAHANA (Photo credit should read MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images)
