Yeshiva students go on "mass" pilgrimage to Temple Mount

By Nadav Shragai and Yoav Stern, Haaretz Correspondents

Hundreds of Yeshiva students entered the Temple Mount compound on Monday, ahead of Yom Kippur, with the blessing of Rabbis Nahum Rabinovich and Yitzhak Shilat of the West Bank settlement of Ma'aleh Adumim. Rabbinical rulings have long banned Jews from entering the Temple Mount, but this prohibition has been relaxed recently by some Religious-Zionist rabbis.

Monday's visit, however, was the first "mass" pilgrimage trip to the Temple Mount, and it had been coordinated with the Jerusalem police in advance.

The public order was reportedly maintained.
