Committee on Temple Mount Prayer Convenes for First Session

A special Knesset subcommittee will convene Monday and hear arguments for allowing Jews to pray on the Mount. It is the first time that the Knesset is conducting an in-depth examination of Jewish demands to be allowed to pray on the Mount, which has been under nominal Israeli control for decades, but is administered by the Muslim Waqf Authority.
