The Western Wall
Around 19 BC Herod the Great began a massive expansion project on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. In addition to fully rebuilding and enlarging the Temple, he expanded the platform on which it stood, doubling it in size. Today's Western Wall formed part of the retaining perimeter wall of this platform. The Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray near the Temple Mount, though it is not the holiest site in the Jewish faith, which lies behind it. The term 'Wailing Wall' is not used by Jews and increasingly many others who consider it derogatory.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
