Today (Friday), Mr. Victor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary, and his wife paid a visit to the Western Wall as part of an official visit to Jerusalem.

Upon his arrival, Mr. Urban heard from the Western Wall rabbi Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz shlita and the director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation Mordechai (Soli) Eliav explained the longings of the Jews for Jerusalem throughout the generations and the history of this holy place.

The Rabbi of the Western Wall said with the Prime Minister of Hungary Chapter KKA in the Psalms and blessed him with the prayer of King Solomon that all his prayers would be willingly accepted.

The wife of the Hungarian Prime Minister said that since her visit in 2015 she often looks at the Western Wall cameras and that this visit is very short and she would have been happy to stay and pray here more.

Mr. Urban noted that for him too the visit is short and that he would be happy to return with his family for a more in-depth visit. He also noted that he greatly appreciates the pursuit of history, that through the past one learns the future and that the Hungarian people are very much connected to history. Apparently, if you ask a Hungarian “Who are you?”, He will immediately answer who his grandfather was and his great-grandfather …

I have visited here before and my prayer has been answered. I will continue to be a supporter of Israel even though it is not easy in the face of opposition in the world. The Prime Minister of Hungary signed the Guest Book of the Western Wall and noted his important visit and received an album of the Western Wall Tunnels as a gift.
