Three women were stopped for questioning after attempting to pray at the Western Wall in Jewish prayer shawls.  The women, part of a group of about 40 from the Women of the Wall group, were praying at the wall Tuesday morning as part of their monthly rosh chodesh, or new month, prayer service, The Jerusalem Post reported.  A policewoman approached one of the women during the service and asked her not to wear the prayer shawl, or tallit, the way a man would and then adjusted it for her, according to the Post.
