Fighting rabbinic ban, Jewish activists push Temple Mt. prayer closer to mainstream – The Times of Israel

That shift truly a dramatic one, historically speaking was on display on Sunday as a record number of Jews visited the site to celebrate Jerusalem Day, which marks Israels capture of East Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War, the first time that the Temple Mount was in Jewish hands, at least nominally, in some 2,000 years. Over 2,600 Jews visited the Temple Mount, setting a record for the highest number of Jewish visitors to the site in a single day, likely since the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE.
