record numbers visit Har Habayit

The Har Habayit organizations had set a very ambitious goal to have 1000 people ascend Har Habayit on Yom Yerushalayim. This was very ambitious because it was going to be more than double the numbers from the previous year, and it is close to ten times the daily number of visitors. When I heard the number they were shooting for I was skeptical.

According to the reports and numbers published, 968 Jews ascended, with another 130 being turned away by the police for a variety of reasons.

That is an amazing accomplishment by the organizations promoting the aliyah, and a tremendous zchus for them and for the people who went up, and hopefully for eretz yisrael.
