New Wheelchairs at the Western Wall


New wheelchairs have been made available by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation for people with disabilities visiting the Kotel.
Many elderly people and others with disabilities and difficulty walking come to the Western Wall. The Western Wall Heritage Foundation has now made wheelchairs available to them to make their visit to the Western Wall easier. The wheelchairs were placed in the booth at the gate for car entry so that users can take them and return them easily at the end of their visit without having to arrange this in advance. This service is part of the Western Wall Heritage Foundations array of actions meant to make the Western Wall accessible to all segments of the population.

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.
