Israel has issued a stamp on The western wall on 18th April 2012.Since the time of the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago, the Western Wall has been a symbol and focus of yearning for generations of Jews around the world. The Western Wall\’s ancient stones were the objects of a nation\’s longing for its homeland and city, the site mourned by those exiled from it, as well as their sons, grandsons and great grandsons, generation after generation.Even after we returned to the Western Wall and merited to cling to its stones, the Wall remains the symbol of the world\’s strongest substance – heritage. Personal and national memories converge in the stones of the Western Wall, stones that possess human hearts, and are the reason the Jewish nation survived its many hardships in the Diaspora.
Since its establishment, over 1,200,000 have visited the Chain of Generations Center and walked away with “food for thought” and inspiration for the future. Each one of us is a link in the chain of generations, a chain anchored in the past that looks brightly into the future.
