Lubavitch Replicate Another Major Edifice

Chabad.org reports that a new replica of Jerusalem’s Western Wall was unveiled last Thursday by Israeli Public Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein and El Al CEO Eliezer Shkedi, at the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn, N.Y..

So, after moving the Rebbe’s home at 770 Eastern Parkway to Israel, Lubavitch now moves the Kotel to America. My advice to you is, fasten the bolts and beams in your house, or one morning you’ll wake up to discover Lubavitch has moved you to a new continent…

The massive replica serves as the centerpiece of the museum’s new 6,000-square-foot fourth-floor exhibit, “A Voyage Through Jewish History.” Visitors will be invited to write their prayers on a note and insert it into the wall just like in Jerusalem; the notes will then be flown to Israel via El Al and placed in the actual Western Wall. The exhibit will officially open on April 1.

  1. Dan the Man says:

    I love the TV right in the middle of the wall.

  2. No'a says:

    Giving Jews yet another excuse not to come to Israel, even for a visit, is not a good idea. Chabad also built a replica of the Kotel in Berlin. When and where will it end? There is only one Jerusalem and she is in Israel!

  3. משה says:

    Look at the kids davening…it truly makes me sick. This shows how the kotel is turning into avodah zara! Chabad just moves another step closer to not being Judaism!

  4. Yosef Kaner says:

    The Sages say that in the time of Moshiach, Yerushalayim will spread out over all of Eretz Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael will spread out over the entire world. So Chabad is just getting us ready for it….
