Rabbinical Judges visit the Western Wall

ביקור דיינים בכותל המערבי

90 Rabbis of the Rabbinical Court visited the Western Wall and the Western Wall Tunnels. The judges were in Jerusalem as part of the seminars of the national courts.

The judges met with the rabbi of the Old City, Rabbi Avigdor Neventzal, and with the rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, and the Director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation Mordechai (Soli) Eliav, who reviewed the history of the place, and spoke about the activities of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation for the benefit of visitors, tourists, soldiers and students.

During the visit, the judges toured the Western Wall tunnels and the new excavations, the “Journey to Jerusalem” site, and the “A Look into the Past” site – 3-D glasses.

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.
