Earlier this week, Pamela Anderson, who is in town to judge and perform on the Israeli incarnation of Dancing with the Stars—which has received ample press due to the presence of a same-sex dancing partnership—visited the Western Wall, which happens to be another place where same-sex groupings are accommodated (in fact, they are strictly enforced). She approached the ancient stones, modestly dressed and draped in a headscarf to cover both her hair and famous assets. (Someone should tell her that covering her hair is halachically unnecessary since she is not a married woman, unless she and Tommy Lee have decided to give it yet another shot.) No word on whether the Baywatch star slipped a note into a crevice.

Danny Ayalon, the deputy foreign minister, rolled out the Twitter welcome mat: “Welcome @PamelaDAnderson. I am sure you will enjoy your time here.”

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Michael says:

And where, I wonder, are the charedim with stones?

michael says:

while pamala may not be a married woman, divorced women are known to cover their hair also.

Naftoli says:

Is the first comment anti-semitic? I suppose as long as it is directed at Orthodox Jews it’s OK.

If I would take Michael seriously I would be bemused that he would think that Pamela’s presence in the women’s section would even be noticed by men.
