As part of his visit to Israel, New York Republican candidate for Congress, Bruce Blakeman, visited the Jewish communities of eastern Jerusalem and the old city of Jerusalem. Hosted by the Ateret Cohanim staff, Blakeman visited the Jewish homes that are part of a big project of strengthening Jewish presence in all areas of the Jewish capital, even if they've been populated throughout the years by Arabs.

During Blakeman's visit he heard from residents who have been suffering from rock and firebomb terror attacks on their homes.

The Congressional candidate completed his tour at the Kotel (Western Wall), the remaining wall of the Holy Temple, the holiest site of the Jewish people.
