Mysterious New Synagogue Opens In Tunnel Deep Under The Western Wall In Jerusalem On Temple Mount

The synagogue, which was funded by donations from the Delek Foundation and Delek Group owner Yitzhak Tshuva, is deep inside the complex and is adjacent to the area above which the ancient Jewish temples on the Temple Mount stood, and the inner sanctum of the Holy of Holies in particular. The subterranean synagogue has a dramatic feel to it, with low arched ceilings and walls of ancient stones on all sides, and a unique spherical, metal ark to house Torah scrolls.

A remarkable new synagogue within the Western Wall tunnels complex which took 12 years to build was dedicated and opened on Monday night following the traditional Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony in the Western Wall plaza.

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: With all the news and controversy over President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the renewed talk about building the Third Jewish Temple, I find this story fascinating and timely. This very end times looking synagogue has been built by a Jewish billionaire who wanted a house of worship in the shadow of the original Temple. The fact that is deep underground in a 2,000+ year old tunnel under the Western Wall is, well, leaping right off the pages of a Left Behind plot twist. We will absolutely be keeping an eye on this and everything else happening at God’s ground zero, Jerusalem!

I could not find a video on the new synagogue in particular, but check out this incredible video about the structure of the Western Wall. Click here to view if reading this via email.

The ark’s walls are formed of the words and sentences of the “Shema Yisrael” prayer and the Biblical Book of the Song of Songs cast in metal and running the entire circumference of the sphere, topped by a cast metal sculpture of the burning bush.

IS GOD PREPARING TO ONCE AGAIN VISIT THE JEWS AS 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF ISRAEL BEING REGATHERED APPROACHES?

The Western Wall Heritage Foundation stated that the synagogue “will be open to anyone who desires to study and connect to the synagogue” and that prayer arrangements for it will shortly be published. source
