Old City Closed to Private Vehicles


Because of the many visitors to Jerusalem's Old City, police closed streets leading to the area to private vehicles, Monday morning. Motorists were asked to use parking lots in the center of town and use public transportation to get to the Old City. 

Among the attractions was the blessing of tens of thousands of worshippers at the Western Wall of the Temple by thousands of Cohanim, descendants of Aaron the High Priest.
