New Bookcase Dedicated at the Womens Section of the Western Wall

A new and beautiful bookcase was dedicated last night at the womens section of the Western Wall.  The unique gold-framed bookcase was etched in stone in the back section of the Western Wall Plaza and contains four double units holding prayer siddurim in different nosachs and books of Psalms for the benefit of the worshipers.

The bookcases were initiated and implemented by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation and donated by Mr. Jacobo Cojab of Mexico.  They will greatly benefit the women who pray at the Kotel who, until now, had to go to a small space to the right of the plaza in order to find a siddur.

The new bookcase is accessibly and user-friendly, protected from rain and sun by class doors which are easily pressed open and closed leaving all the siddurs and books of Tehillim (Psalms) within easy reach.

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.
