Three thousand years ago King David conquered Jerusalem from the Jebusites and established the "City of David" on the ridge above the Pool of Siloam. The city was surrounded by deep valleys on three sides. Above it, to the north, was the hill upon which the Temple would be built. David turned Jerusalem into the capital of the Kingdom of Israel, concentrating all royal, political and religious authority, in a single place and person for the first time. David's son Solomon completed his father's work and built the Temple. Ruled by many nations in the course of its history, Jerusalem has stimulated the imagination of much of mankind. It remains the City of David to this day.

There are people with hearts of stone...and there are stones with human hearts". For every Jew, the stones of the Western Wall are the most precious stones in the world. For 2,000 years, this mute wall has been standing, a remnant of the walls enclosing the Temple Mount, a tangible, unbroken link between the Jewish People and its land. Our sages used to say that the Wall has never been abandoned by the "Shechina", the divine spirit dwelling there. The wall has been the focus of Jewish yearning for Jerusalem. Today, visitors push little notes with prayers and supplications into the crevices of the Wall. This medal commemorates the eternal longing for Jerusalem and the Wall, as well as recent archaeological discoveries.
