 The Western Wall Heritage Foundation, after consultations with the Health Ministry and the National Security Council, prepared “capsules” that limit gatherings at the Western Wall Plaza to 8,000 people.

In coordination with the Israel Police, worshippers were directed from the gates of the Old City and on the  routes to the Kotel to avoid crowding. The Foundation ushers directed the public to abide by regulations.

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.
