The Western Wall Plaza has been divided into capsules for the slihot penitential prayers leading up to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Worshipers are required to wear masks and obey the Health Ministry’s coronavirus guidelines. Up to 10,000 worshipers will be allowed into the plaza at a time and be divided into the capsules.
Worshipers should arrive early in the evening and also during the early days of the slihot period instead of just at the end to avoid overcrowding and to protect the health and safety of all visitors, the Western Wall Heritage Foundation said in a press release.
