U.S. President Donald Trump touches the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site, in Jerusalem’s Old City May 22, 2017.

Trump made a historic visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall on Monday, standing before the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray and saying a few words before inserting a note between the monumental stones.

He was accompanied by the Rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinowitz, who said on Israel Radio that he recited two psalms with the U.S. leader. One of them, Psalm 122, speaks of Jerusalem as a “city that is united together”. The ancient stones are in a part of Jerusalem that Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

It considers all of Jerusalem its indivisible capital, a status that is not recognized internationally.
