The Western Wall


[more photos of Western Wall]
The Western Wall of the Temple Mount is the  most sacred site for Jews, also known as the "Wailing Wall" where Jews mourned the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 AD.  [Also see Jewish faith and people and Jewish Quarter of the "Old City" of Jerusalem]

I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord!" Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!  Jerusalem, built as a city which is bound firmly together, to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as we decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.                                                                                                                   - Psalm 122:1-4
