The Israeli government has approved the creation of a new prayer space for non-Orthodox Jews at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, allowing men and women to pray together.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a “creative solution” that would “unify the people of Israel”.Orthodox Jews voted against the move but said they accepted the decision.Traditionally, only Orthodox Jews are allowed to pray at the Western Wall – and men and women are kept separate.
