The Jerusalem Connection

Arutz Sheva February 20, 2004

The Temple Mount and the Western Wall saw several Heaven-entreating
events yesterday and last night, as the People of Israel continue to manifest
the connection between their ages-old faith and the current political climate.

The Temple Mount and the Western Wall saw several Heaven-entreating events
yesterday and last night, as the People of Israel continue to manifest the
connection between their ages-old faith and the current political climate. At 4 PM
Thursday, over 5,000 people participated in a Western Wall prayer rally for
the nullification of the decree to give away Jewish Gaza and expel nearly 8,000
Jews from their homes. Leading the prayers were former Chief Rabbis Mordechai
Eliyahu and Avraham Shapira.

Immediately afterwards, thousands of people took part in the now-traditional
monthly March Around the Temple Mount Gates. Rabbi Eliyahu took part as well,
for the first time. The participants at this increasingly-popular event
express their desire and demand to enter and pray at the holy site by circling the
Temple Mount, and stopping to recite a Psalm, sing, and play music at each of
the gates.

Towards midnight, close to 1,000 people, led by Rabbi Yehuda Lyon of Netanya,
crowded into the tunnel to the west of the Western Wall plaza for a
night-long inspirational event in honor of the “Shovavim” repentance period. The
participants recited a special series of Psalms (Tikkun), sang, heard words of
Torah, and more.
