The World Zionist Organization has created an educational guide to help open up conversations about the Kotel Crisis entitled "Beit Ha'am: Pray for the Wellbeing of Jerusalem." 

As Tisha B'Av approaches, we invite you to use this resource in your communities and homes. This unit deals with controversies and tensions that have characterized the debate over egalitarian access to the Western Wall. You will find selected texts and suggestions for guided discussions that can serve as an excellent basis for an educational activity with different groups. Additionally, this text includes an activity that focuses on Jerusalem through an artistic lense in order to open up new avenues for conversation.
