|A long history and future for the Kotel
The Western Wall, the Kotel, stands at over 60 feet high and is over 180 feet long. Despite its modest name, it is the most signifi cant site for Jews worldwide. It is what we look towards when we pray, it is where we return in our dreams. It is our eternal link to our past and our hope for the future. It is the last remnant of the Temple and a place that Jews from around the world gather to pray.
