The Israeli government approved on Sunday the creation of a mixed-sex plaza at Jerusalem's Western Wall to accommodate Jews who contest Orthodox curbs on worship by women there.The new area will be located at a separate expanse of the wall that, when seen from the plaza looking toward the wall, stands to the right of the current Orthodox-administered compound where men and women will still worship separately.The mosque compound, wall and several Christian shrines are in Jerusalem's Old City, which Israel captured in the 1967 war and annexed as its capital in a move not recogniZed abroad.An Israeli official said the new plaza will take at least a year to complete.
