10th of Tevet at the "Small Wall"


On Sunday, the fast of the 10th of Tevet, prayers will be held, all day, at Hakotel Hakatan, a 25-meter section of the Western Wall of the Temple that is isolated from the more famous segment. One morning service is scheduled for 8:00 a.m., while an afternoon service is scheduled for 15:30

The "Small Wall" is believed to be opposite the estimated location of the Holy of Holies. Eli Lifschitz, manager of Midreshet Kadmat Yerushalayim, which organizes prayers and other events at the site, says it's important to pray there as a way of raising public awarenes for the place. He said he ultimately wanted the site to be used as a place for organized prayer on a regular basis.
