United States Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides began his tenure two and a half years ago with a visit and prayer at the Kosel, where he lit candles during the official Chanukkah candle-lighting ceremony.

Today, as he is about to conclude his role in Yerushalayim, the ambassador travel to the Kosel for a personal and national prayer before his return to the U.S.

During his two-and-a-half-year tenure as the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, Mr. Nides visited the Kosel dozens of times and participated in many events.

“The Ambassador saw the Kosel as a significant place and a spiritual center for the Jewish people, and he cared deeply about its development,” the Kosel Foundation said.
