Female journalists accompanying U.S. Vice President Mike Pence at the Western Wall on Tuesday were separated from their male colleagues and sent away to a fenced and covered area in the back of the Western Wall compound.
Meanwhile, during his stop in Israel, Pence said nothing of any USA intention to prompt Israeli officials to show flexibility on basic Palestinian demands, including a reduction of the economic suffering of Palestinians in the suffocated Gaza Strip.
Lord Sacks said that he considered it "a great tribute to the Jewish people" that Pence had sought his guidance for sections of his speech dwelling on the historic connection between Jews and Israel, according to a report in the Jewish Chronicle.
Dan Sacker, Lord Sacks's spokesperson, confirmed to the Jewish Chronicle that the former chief rabbi and the vice president met in NY for 90 minutes to discuss the speech.
His visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City comes amid tensions with the Palestinians, who have assailed the Trump administration's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The vice president was preceded on the Knesset dais by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who lavished his guest with praise and gratitude.
He described Trump as "a political pyromaniac, a racist misogynist".

Clinical Kerber defeats Sharapova at Open
Along the way, he has won five of his 19 Grand Slam singles titles. "I think it was a good decision to do it". My ankle is, I don't know how it is because I don't feel it anymore, but it was nice to be on court.
Because I can tell you that Israel does want to make peace, and they're going to have to want to make peace too, or we're going to have nothing to do with it any longer.
Despite the pandemonium, Pence expressed hope in an interview with The Associated Press after the speech that the Palestinians would re-enter negotiations. But as I said, it is controversial because Palestinians also have a claim on the city.
It has been a busy time for "non-diplomacy" in the Middle East. While the Israeli government is understandably thrilled at what they have seen from Trump so far, from the Jerusalem recognition to Trump's hands-off approach to new settlement construction, the uncomfortable fact remains that Trump has no prior relationship with Israel that gives him bonafides to pass the infamous "kishkes" test. Trump's volatility and unpredictability means that he could turn on Israel or Netanyahu at the drop of a hat, even if Israel loves what it has seen so far.
"You proved that you are a true friend of the State of Israel and of Jerusalem".
'The pageant Jerusalem [that] the world witnessed during the Pence visit was a meeting between a prominent leader of the "end-of-days" evangelical cult and its Israeli sister settler cult - cults that now dominate the governance of their respective countries, ' Seidemann wrote.
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas says Trump's moves "deliberately undermine all peace efforts" and says Washington can no longer play the role of peace broker. At the heart of this movement are the Christian and dispensational Zionists who believe that the creation of Israel in 1948 was "the sign of all signs" and "the greatest event from a prophetic point of view since the destruction of Temple of Solomon, in the year 70 of the Christian era" (Au nom de Dieu, au nom de l'Amérique, de Tarek Mitri, Labor et Fides, page 172).
