Thousands Dance and Pray around Old Temple Gates

reprinted from Arutz 7
Shevat 30, 5769, 24 February 09 04:59

by IsraelNN Staff

Thousands of men and women encircle the old Temple gates every evening prior to the new month and recite Psalms. From the time of the capture of the old city of Jerusalem by the Jordanian army during the war of Independence, until the holy city’s liberation in 1967, Jews were forbidden even from entering the old city.

The celebration is not only in honor of the new month but also is in the hope that we will soon see the rebuilt Beit HaMikdash on the Temple Mount.
