Begin Center Hosts Conference on Temple Mount


Rabbi Yaakov Medan of Har Etzion Yeshiva spoke at the Begin Center Conference on the Temple Mount, "The Shin Bet Jewish Division Director told me Jewish presence on the Mount is essential for maintaining our sovereignty. He told me that in order to accommodate this trend he would increase the number of agents and security personnel on the Temple Mount."

Supreme Court Justice Dalia Dorner said she felt the issue of Jews praying on the Mount was not within the Court's jurisdiction, "We would never rule to prohibit this basic right."
