The Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies invites you for a book talk given by our guest speakers, Kobi Cohen-Hattab and Doron Bar, the authors of the newly published book, The Western Wall: The Dispute Over Israel's Jewish Holiest Site 1967-2000. In the lecture, they will offer an overview of the main stages and processes in the development of the Western Wall Plaza as a Jewish and Israeli symbol.

Their book examines the role of archaeology in defining the space, the Western Wall’s transformation as an Israeli and Jewish symbol and the movement to open it to a variety of Jewish denominations. It studies the central processes and shifts that took place at the Western Wall during the three decades that followed the Six-Day War — a relatively short yet crucial chapter in Jerusalem's extensive history.
