Monthly Encirclement of the Temple Mount

13:14 Apr 30, '06 / 2 Iyar 5766

Ezra HaLevi

Every month thousands of worshippers take part in the traditional sivuv she'arim, the encircling the outer walls of the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site.

The renewal of the ancient custom began nearly four years ago with a small group and has since become a very popular event. The marchers express their desire to identify with the Temple Mount by circling the holy site - stopping to pray and sing at each of the gates.

The march takes place at the start of a every Jewish month, meeting in the Western Wall plaza toward nightfall and continuing around the outside walls of the Temple Mount. The march is accompanied by prayer and singing and is known as one of the most festive and moving Jerusalem traditions.
