The Romanian Prime Minister visited the Western Wall

Prime Minister of Romania, Mr. Sorin Grindeanu, visited the Western Wall today and was received by the Director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation Mr. Mordechai (Suli) Eliav.


The Prime Minister recited a prayer at the Western Wall Plaza, and then visited the “Look into the Past” site — a virtual-reality experience of the Temple, and the Western Wall Tunnels — where he saw a presentation that depicts the Western Wall its immediate environment throughout the generations.


During the tour, the Prime Minister learned about the holiness of the site  and Judasim’s eternal connection to Jerusalem.


The Prime Minister expressed his deep appreciation of the visit and at its conclusion, he wrote: “The experience at this holy site will remain etched in my heart forever.”

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.
