Police Close Off Temple Mount to Jews, but Some Manage a Visit

Police Wednesday closed off the Temple Mount to Jews who had hoped to ascend it on Shavuot, one of the three holidays on which Jews used to make pilgrimage to the Temple in ancient times.

A small group that included leading rabbis managed to enter the Mount and tour it for a few minutes before being instructed to leave by the police.
