The First Jews at the Kotel Since 1948

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Following the liberation of East Jerusalem on 7 June 1967, IDF Chief Rabbi Major-General Shlomo Goren, blowing a shofar and carrying a Torah scroll, held the first Jewish prayer session at the Western Wall since 1948.

The event was one of the defining moments of the war.

Happy Jerusalem Day to all our readers!
