The Pantheon Group, which manages the Temple Mount, has completed the building of a bridge to link the Temple of the Sun and the Old City of Jerusalem with the northern section of the Old Wall.
The project, completed last week, will include the construction of a new roadway that will pass between the old city wall and the northern wall, which is currently under construction, and a new pedestrian crossing, between the Old Temple and the Temple Gate.
“The Temple Mount is one of the most important religious sites in the world, and this project is part of a much larger vision to bring a new spiritual dimension to the holy site, as part of our efforts to reconnect Jerusalem to the Holy Land,” said the group’s CEO, Micky Rosenblum.
In the coming years, the temple will be used for a variety of services, including the annual prayer services for the Jewish holy day, the annual pilgrimage to the Mount, and special celebrations for the religious holiday of Hanukkah, the Jewish New Year.
Israel has built an enormous and expensive new barrier, known as the Wall of the Wall, to separate the city of Jerusalem from the rest of Israel, but it will only serve as a barrier for a short time, after Israel completes a permanent separation barrier between Jerusalem and the occupied territories of the West Bank.
This will last about five years, during which time Israel will have to continue the construction and repair of the wall to ensure that it is built to last.
The Pantheon group is a major construction company that has been working on a project for the past 15 years to create a new bridge for the Temple to the Old Town of Jerusalem, which currently is under construction and is being funded by Israel’s government.
The temple’s completion is a landmark achievement in the history of the Temple.
Since it opened in the 18th century, the Temple has been an integral part of the life of Jews in Israel.
Today, the Old Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem hosts a wide variety of events including the weekly prayers, the services for Jewish New Years and Hanukki festivals, as well as celebrations of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, when Jews across the country mark the first day of the Passover holiday.
Many of the ancient walls and other structures have been repaired and upgraded in recent years, as Israel and the Palestinians negotiate an historic agreement on a future state of Palestine.
The building of the new bridge marks the completion of a project that has attracted international attention, including praise from UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and from President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Jerusalem municipality said in a statement that the construction was “the result of careful planning and work with all the parties involved, including local communities.”
