An “invitation only” ceremony in the Old City of Jerusalem Monday celebrated the restoration of the Hurva synagogue, which was destroyed by the Jordanians in the War of Independence in 1948.

Palestinian leaders had called on Israeli Arabs to flock to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount to protect it, distributing pamphlets claiming that the rededication was the first step toward the construction of a Third Holy Temple.

The Islamic Movement sent dozens of buses full of Israeli Arabs from around the country to Jerusalem on Monday.
