Netanyahu agrees with haredim not to allow Women of the Wall to read Torah at Western Wall – The Jerusalem Post 29.12.15

WOW seeks to read from the Torah for their monthly prayer services as well as to allow girls to have their Bat Mitzvah at the Western Wall and for them to read from the Torah at the ceremony in the women’s section.
