Madonna visits Western Wall
Madonna made a late-night visit to the Western Wall. Accompanied by bodyguards, Madonna on Sunday night visited Judaism’s holiest site and toured the attached underground tunnels. Madonna arrived in Israel, accompanied by her children, for two concerts in Tel Aviv.
The singer was scheduled to meet at the end of the week with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Tzipi Livni. Madonna last visited Israel in 2006 for Yom Kippur, which she celebrated with 2,000 other kabbalah followers. She has not converted to Judaism.
