Israeli police Monday detained 10 women, including the sister of American comic Sarah Silverman, as they tried to pray at a Jerusalem holy site, the head of a liberal Jewish women's group said.
Israeli police have detained the sister of U.S. comedian Sarah Silver, along with nine other women, for wearing improper religious clothing while praying at a holy site in Jerusalem.
Anat Hoffman, who was among those detained, said the women were stopped because they were wearing religious garb that Orthodox Judaism reserves for men only.
"This is just attrition," said Hoffman. "They want to the group to become frightened."
