CAMERA Obtains Los Angeles Times Correction on Western Wall

CAMERA obtained the following correction at the Los Angeles Times clarifying that the Western Wall, part of the retaining wall of the temple complex, is one of several temple remnants to have survived:

Error (Los Angeles Times, Laura King, 9/20/04): Madonna tried to make a predawn pilgrimage Sunday to the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City, which is held to be the sole remnant of the Jews’ Second Temple.

Correction (9/24/04): Western Wall–An article in Monday’s Section A about a visit to Jerusalem by pop star Madonna described the Western Wall in the Old City as the sole remnant of Jews’ Second Temple. It is the principal remnant of the temple complex accessible to worshipers, but other archeological elements survive.
