The Western Wall Heritage Foundation shares in the sorrow of the Herzog family upon the passing of Ora Herzog, mother of President Isaac Herzog, and wife of the sixth president and military governor of Jerusalem when it was reunited, Chaim Herzog z’l. Mrs. Herzog was the founder of the Council for a Beautiful Israel that gave the Israel Prize to the Western Wall Tunnels in 1993.
May the Lord comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
