Western Wall Signs Stress Jewish Connection To Temple Mount



Unbeknownst to many the Western or Wailing Wall is not the holiest site to Judaism instead it is the Temple itself where a mosque stands and the Israeli government does not allow Jewish worshippers to go.


    Several large signs have been affixed near the entrances to Jerusalem's Western Wall plaza. In addition to the usual guidelines regarding modesty and respect for the sanctity of the holy site, the centrality of the Temple Mount to Judaism and the Jewish people is clearly expressed.
