The new Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, and the outgoing Chief of General Staff in their visit to the Western Wall

The new Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, Major General Aviv Kochavi, and the outgoing Chief of General Staff, Major General Gadi Eizenkot, came to pray at the Western Wall. Hundreds of worshippers from Israel and abroad excitedly greeted them. The chiefs of staff recited chapters of Psalms, the prayer for the welfare of IDF soldiers, and the prayer for the welfare of the State of Israel. Then they placed a note between the stones of the Wall.

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.
