Rafael Josef, that is interesting information. Now I am even more curious. I thought perhaps it was a temporary work and storage area for the construction to the right. Will have to stay tuned. :)
Zenzi, Thanks for your reply. However, the egalitarian prayer section is outside the camera's range to the right and, in any event, the works in the foreground have been going on for most of the winter and are too far away from the Wall to be directly associated.
Rafael Josef, I was wondering the same, and found this: Construction has begun to upgrade the section set aside for egalitarian prayer at the Western Wall. Workers reportedly arrived at the site on Thursday and began erecting scaffolding at the southern end of the Western Wall......The plan also would have included a common entrance to the Western Wall plaza for all three sections and a public board to oversee the egalitarian prayer space and would include representatives of the non-Orthodox movements and Women of the Wall. Israel’s Supreme Court during a four-hour session on the issue of prayer rights for women at the Western Wall last month indicated that physical upgrades to the section set aside for egalitarian prayer is key to satisfying the government’s suspended agreement with the liberal Jewish groups. There is a very informative article on JTA website. Shalom.
Does anyone know what the construction work is about and whether it'll be finished before Pesach?
Not much peace at the Wailing Wall (or Western Wall) with all that construction noise going on!
Peace to the beloved and eternal capital of Israel, the city of the Eternal. Shalom, Jerusalem! I appreciate this marvel!

Such a Blessing to be there without physically being there....
Apparently US Vice President Mike Pence is set to visit Jerusalem’s Western Wall on Tuesday. No doubt high security in evidence.
Jan. 22 -- Wow! They put those tents up fast. Does anyone know what it's in preparation for?
