Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, in Yerushalayim for the 90th birthday celebration of Israeli President Shimon Peres, visited the Kosel Hamaarovi and expressed “continued admiration” for Jewish heritage. Clinton prayed, placed a note in the Kosel, and toured the Kosel tunnels, reports Arutz Sheva.
He was also given a warm welcome by Kosel Rov Rav Shmuel Rabinovitch.
“I love this place,” Clinton said. “Here we see the many different lives that have been in Jerusalem through the different periods. There are layers to each period and each layer represents a world of life.”
The President wrote in the visitors book and expressed his appreciation and gratitude for his “amazing visit to this place that continues to be an eye opening experience,” Arutz Sheva reported.
