Western Wall

Jerusalem Highlight Western Wall

The Western Wall is the most religious site in the world for the Jewish people. Did you know that the Wall is a surviving remnant of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and it is here, on Mount Moriah, that Isaac was bound for sacrifice. And it is here that his son Jacob dreamed of the ladder ascending to heaven.Although other parts of the Temple Mount retaining wall remain standing, the Western Wall is especially dear, as it is the spot closest to the Holy of Holies, the central focus of the Temple. Well, I didn't! ;)
