On the other hand

We have just finished celebrating Succot, one of the three Pilgrim Festivals when Jews from all over the country, as well as from the Diaspora, would visit the Temple in Jerusalem.

This year’s observance of Succot marked a record number of Jewish worshippers visiting the Temple Mount, the holiest site for Jews today.

This short video explains exactly which rituals were observed during this Festival and shows exactly where they took place. Note the number of modern-day pilgrims who now visit.

This should send a strong message that Jerusalem is, without doubt, the eternal capital of Israel and is not up for internationalization or division.

At the same time, it is a place where people of all faiths and ethnicities are welcome to worship and visit – a stark contrast to the time when Jews were banned and expelled.
