Peggy Cidor, a leading member of the Women of the Wall organization, stands in the hallway of her building in Jerusalem, Monday, May 20, 2013. The group, known as "Women of the Wall," convenes monthly prayer services at the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray, wearing prayer shawls and performing rituals that ultra-Orthodox Jews believe only men are allowed to do. Israeli officials initially opposed the group but have recently backed its right to worship and earlier this month thousands of ultra-Orthodox protesters tried to prevent their prayer service. The graffiti in Hebrew reads, "The women of the Western Wall are despised." (AP Photo/Michal Fattal) ***ISRAEL OUT***
