PSA: daven opposite the Holy of Holies!


The Rav Ha'Kotel, Rav Shmuel Rabinowitz, in conjunction with the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, will be opening the Kotel tunnels to allow people to daven opposite the Holy of Holies.

If you have ever taken the Kotel Tunnels Tour, you will remember that there is that huge stone, and when you continue down to the left, you get to a certain point that is directly opposite the Holy of Holies.

During the last days of the "Three Weeks", specifically the days of 4, 5 and 6 Av, during which we mourn the destruction of the Batei Mikdash, the area opposite the Holy of Holies will be open to the general public for round the clock prayer. They are planning on having three days, 72 hours, of round the clock prayer at this site.

The thing is the area can only hold up to 40 people at a time, so they require you to register in advance if you want to daven there.

The phone number for registering is: 02-678-8452.

For anybody who will not go up to Har Habayit, this is the closest you can possibly get to the Holy of Holies, so it is a special opportunity for you.
