Temple Mount

— [Old City of Jerusalem] —

The Divine presence never moves from the Western Wall.

Jewish tradition teaches that the Temple
Mount is the focal point of Creation.
In the center of the mountain lies the
"Foundation Stone" of the world.
Here Adam came into being.
Here Abraham, Isaac and Jacob served God.
The First and Second Temples were built
upon this mountain.
The Ark of the Covenant was set upon the
Foundation Stone itself.
Jerusalem was chosen by God as the dwelling
place of the Shechinah.
David longed to build the Temple, and
Solomon, his son, built the First Temple here
about 3000 years ago.
It was destroyed by Nevuchadnezzar
of Babylon.
The Second Temple was rebuilt on its ruins
seventy years later.
It as razed by the Roman legions
over 1900 years ago.
The present Western Wall before you is a
remnant of the western Temple Mount
retaining walls.
Jews have prayed in its shadow
for hundreds of years, an expression of their
faith in the rebuilding of the Temple.
The Sages said about it: "The Divine Presence
never moves from the Western Wall."
The Temple Mount continues to be the focus
of prayer for Jews from all over the world.

"My House is a House of Prayer for all Peoples." Isaiah 56:7
