President of Zambia Visits the Western Wall

Zambian President Edgar Lungu visited the Western Wall last week.  During his visit, the President met with Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, and heard from him about the extensive history of the holy site.  Later, President Lungu prayed at the stones of the Wall.
The President expressed his excitement about the visit and wrote in the guest book: I believe that G-d exists in each of us.  We shall seek Him in everything we do.  I pray that He blesses Zambia and the people of my country.

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.
