Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen visited the Western Wall and on Tuesday. They were received by the rabbi of the Western Wall and the Holy Sites of Israel, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch.
Rabbi Rabinovitch told Harper that "the secret wishes of millions of Jews through the ages were whispered near these rocks. King Solomon asked that with the establishment of the Temple this place will be the place where prayers of Jews and non-Jews are accepted. There is no doubt that the prayer of such an avid supporter of the Jewish people such as yourself will be accepted in this place.”
