President of Guatemala, Mr. Jimmy Morales, visited the Western Wall

Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales, and his wife were greeted at the Western Wall by the Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, who recited with them Chapter 121 of Psalms.
President Morales told him that this hymn is read by the Jewish people three times on Shabbat. The President was impressed by this new information and said that he would now make sure to read it three times a day himself.
Later, the President recited a prayer near the ancient stones of the Western Wall and placed a note between its layers. He expressed great excitement over the Jewish history at the site and said that he felt the special holiness that envelopes the Western Wall.
It is a real privilege to be here today, wrote President Morales in the Visitors Book, May G-d bless all of humanity which He created in great love and compassion.

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.
