Archbishop of Canterbury to Visit Western Wall and Al Aqsa Mosque

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is scheduled to arrive in Israel Wednesday as part of a five-day trip to the Middle East.

The archbishop is making sure to honor all three major religions, with visits planned to the Western Wall, the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Welby, whose father’s German-Jewish family fled to the UK to escape anti-Semitism in the late 19th century, will also visit Yad VaShem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial.

He also will attend the opening of an Arab Episcopal medical center in Ramallah, according to the London Guardian.
