Two former Israeli Chief Rabbis led prayers at the Western Wall to imploring God to stop “evil plans” to evacuate settlements. Rabbi Avraham Shapira and Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu, both chief rabbis in the 1980s who went on to advise the settler movement, led about 5,000 worshippers in prayers last Friday at the Jerusalem holy site.
