CAMERA Elicits Washington Post Correction on Western Wall

CAMERA’s communication with the Washington Post prompted a correction on the status of the Western Wall in Judaism. The error and correction follow:
Error (Washington Post, photo caption, 3/20/08): As Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) watches, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) lays his hand on the ancient stones of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site.

Correction (3/27/08): A photo caption with a March 20 A-section article mischaracterized the religious importance of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The wall is the holiest place Jews can pray, not Judaism’s holiest place.
The correction should have stated that the Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site.
