“Under the Surface”

The Western Wall Heritage Foundation thanks the more than 200 participants in the seminar day on the topic of Under the Surface that took place yesterday (10th of Av) in the Western Wall Tunnels.  The seminar, in conjunction with the Matmonei Haaretz association, dealt with the topic of Judaism and archeology from the perspectives of various professionals and rabbis in the fields of halacha (Jewish law) and archeology of the Kotel complex and Temple Mount.

The participants enjoyed the in-depth lectures and fascinating tours of the excavations and the new sites that have not yet been revealed to the general public. 

Today June 21, 2021

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.
