But How Will We Get In?

Nadav Shragai reports:-

The engineer of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, Ofer Cohen, has again warned that the remains of the ramp upon which the temporary entrance to the Moghrabi Gate of Jerusalem's Old City was built is in danger of collapse.

Cohen wrote to the head of WWHF, Rabbi Mordechai Eliav, that a significant snowfall, or even large amounts of rain, could threaten the stability of the bridge.

The rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, said in response that as far as he is concerned the Moghrabi Gate could be locked and its use discontinued immediately.

Since this is the main entrance to the Temple Mount, close to the Kotel and very secure (as the other gates are located amidst densely populated Arab narrow streets), I would think the dear Rabbi should be a bit more sympathetic to our needs.
