President of Romania visited the Western Wall

Romanian President, Klaus Werner Iohannis, visited the Western Wall last night with his wife, Carmen Johannis. During his visit he prayed at the Wall, placed a note between the stones, and toured the Western Wall Tunnels. The President commented that his visit to the Wailing Wall was truly a unique experience -“I was very moved by the stories I’ve heard about this special place. My thoughts are with your people and your country. Our friendship is strong and deep.” Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, presented Mr. Iohannis with a personalized copy of The Western Wall Tunnels book as an expression of the Jewish peoples’ appreciation of his friendship and support.

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.
