he President of Hungary Visits the Western Wall

The President was greeted by the rabbi of the Western Wall and holy sites

Hungarian President Katalin Novák came with her delegation to the Western Wall for the second time as part of her visit to Jerusalem and the Old City.
The President was greeted by the rabbi of the Western Wall and holy sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, who explained the Jewish nation’s profound connection with its capital and the meaning of King David’s prayer in Psalms, “Request the welfare of Jerusalem.” The Rabbi blessed the President for coming to Jerusalem and for the connection of her country with Israel.

The President wrote in the Western Wall guestbook:

“May our prayers be listened to and may more people understand that in G-d we are united, that our common father brings us closer to each other.
[May] the Israeli-Hungarian friendship [be] long-lasting!”

Interesting Facts

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.
