Prayer Opposite the Holy of Holies in the Western Wall Tunnels will be devoted to those who have gotten corona in Israel and around the world.

There is daily minyan for Psalms at the site called Opposite the Holy of Holies in the Western Wall Tunnels that recites Psalms for hundreds of people who send in names that are read after Psalms are recited.


Due to the spread of the coronavirus and the great danger of its spread in Israel and around the world, it was decided that starting today, the recitation of Psalms will be devoted to those who have corona in Israel and around the world.  In addition, after the Psalms are recited, the prayer pitom haketoret will be added as well as a special prayer composed by the rabbi of the Western Wall and holy sites, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, for the removal of the plague from Israel and the world.


The Western Wall Heritage Foundation calls upon the public to join us in prayer and to send requests or names for prayer through the website at:


https://thekotel.org/kotel/tehillim/ 


or through the email address: [email protected]


The names will be printed daily and the Psalms of that same day will be devoted to their healing.


The Western Wall Heritage Foundation also wishes to note that the Health Ministry has deemed the Western Wall Plaza a wide, open space and therefore there should be no concern regarding coming to pray there.


This morning, 70 families came to the Western Wall to celebrate bar mitzvahs and they were joined by hundreds of worshippers and visitors.


However, in accordance with the regulations of the Health Ministry which state that there should be no more than 100 people at a time in a closed space, the entrance to the Wilsons Arch covered prayer area will be limited.  The Foundation is preparing for the upcoming Shabbat which is expected to be rainy, so tomorrow (Friday) it will erect two prayer tents that can accommodate 100 worshippers each to offer shelter from the rain on the open Western Wall Plaza.

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.
