Kotel Prayer Rally Pushed to 7:00 pm

The mass prayer rally at the Western Wall scheduled for Sunday evening for the safety of the three yeshiva students kidnapped by terrorists has been postponed to 7:00 pm. 

The decision to push off the rally is at the behest of the heads of several yeshiva high schools across Israel, as thousands of students - many not from the Jerusalem area - have planned to attend the event. 

The prayer rally will otherwise continue as planned. Both Chief Rabbis of Israel, leading religious figures, MKs, and government ministers will attend Sunday's rally.
