Chilean Miners: Just Like the Jews, We Kept Our Faith

It was right before noon when the visitors to the Western Wall heard a loud sound of joy,  which is quite unusual for the holy place of prayer, the only vestige of the Holy Temple complex,  destroyed in 70 C.E. by the Roman Legion and considered Judaism’s most sacred site.

The jubilant cries came from the 24 Chilean miners who were rescued about three months ago from two months in  the depths of the earth. They arrived yesterday for a visit to Israel after being invited by the Israeli Tourist Ministry, and as part of their trip,  toured the Western Wall Plaza.
