Members of the Hassidic Belz dynasty filled up the Kotel Plaza Tuesday in a traditional L'Chayim toast following the Tisha B'Av fast. The hassidim sang songs of longing for the Temple.
 
The Kotel Plaza is situated at the foot of the Temple Mount, where the Jewish Temple resided before the Romans sacked and burned it down on Tisha B'Av, 1941 years ago.
