Western Wall is just fine, test of its stability shows

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Western Wall checked out fine in a test of its stability by engineers. 

The office of the rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, said there were no abnormal findings in Tuesday’s test. The check was made less than two weeks before the start of the High Holidays, when hundreds of thousands of people visit the Western Wall Plaza.

Previous tests have found stones that broke during bad weather.
