A delegation of Jordanian leaders visited the Western Wall

A delegation of Muslim leaders from Jordan arrived this week for a prayer and a visit to the Western Wall plaza.

The rabbi of the Western Wall and the holy sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabbinowitz shlita, who hosted the delegation, noted the importance of the place and his appreciation of their visit to the holy place, at this time of incitement with no foundation against the Jewish people.

The leaders told the Rabbi of the Western Wall that they were happy to see that the Western Wall plaza was open to visitors of all faiths, and that all of them were allowed to pray next to the remains of the Holy Temple.

The delegation noted their excitement and they were thankful for the communal prayer and the blessings.

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.
