Austrian Chancellor visited the Western Wall


Austrian Chancellor, Mr. Christian Kern, visited the Western Wall Plaza and the Western Wall Tunnels during his visit to Israel and was received by the rabbi of the Western Wall and the holy sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz.

During the visit, the Rabbi presented the history of the site and the deep connection of the Jewish people to it throughout the generations, and the importance of visiting the wall.

The minister placedd a note between the Western Wall’s ancient stones and said a prayer. At the end of the visit he wrote: “I wish all visitors here will find peace knowing that we are all sons of the Lord of the World.”

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.
