UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid visits Western Wall, Jerusalem

Sajid Javid, British Home Secretary, was the first senior British official to visit the Old City of Jerusalem and the Western Wall in 19 years. He was greeted on Monday by the Director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, Mordechai (Suli) Eliav. The Home Secretary, who also said a prayer at Al Aqsa Mosque, comes from a Muslim family. He explained that his father believed deeply in the connection between Jews and Muslims and said that his brother visited the Western Wall as a child.

The Rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, greeted the minister and recited with him Chapter 121 of Psalms as the Home Secretary placed a note between the stones of the Western Wall.

    Chapter 121 of Psalms? A very Kabbalistic recital. The Muslims also have these sorts of things, so have the Christians, Zoroastrians and some others, I wonder why…

      It’s the physical archaeology that counts here, and it has a lot to say.

    If the Lord will not build a house, its builders have toiled at it in vain; if the Lord will not guard a city, [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain.

    “For this city has aroused My anger and My wrath since the day they built it.” Therefore, he recited this song. My son, why should you build a house and turn away from following the Omnipresent? Since He does not desire it, its workers have toiled at it in vain.
    [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain: The watchman watches it in vain.
