The President of Poland visited the Western Wall

Tonight the President of Poland, Mr. Andrzej Duda, visited the Western Wall accompanied by the Rabbi of Poland, Rabbi Michael Schudrich, and was welcomed by the Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, shlita.


The President expressed his excitement visiting the holiest site for the Jewish people. He told the Rabbi of the Western Wall that the millions who died on Polish soil prayed to this holy site, but were not able to touch its stones, and certainly they never dreamed that one day the Polish president will be here for prayer.

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.
