Prime Minister of Georgia visited the Western Wall

The Prime Minister of Georgia, Mr. Giorgi Kvirikashvili, came to pray at the Western Wall Plaza along with the Foreign Minister of Georgia.

Prime Minister Kvirikashvili noted that he came to the Wall during a sensitive time.  He prayed for peace and security for residents of Israel and for serenity to return to the Holy Basin.

In his words to the Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites, the Prime Minister said that the friendship between the Georgian nation and the Jewish nation has been around for centuries. He said that David, King of Israel, and his psalms are important symbols in Georgia.  The Prime Minister said he was moved to be reciting prayer in the City of David and added that he had his picture and book in his home.

The Prime Minister and Foreign Minister placed notes between the stones of the Wall.

In the Western Wall guest book, the Prime Minister wrote: I pray to God for peace and stability for the residents of Israel, Georgia, and the entire 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.
