    Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem Tuesday afternoon, capping off the Vice President’s first state visit to Israel.

    Pence, a long-time backer of the Jewish state, arrived in Israel for his fourth trip on Sunday, which was originally scheduled for mid-December.

    Donning a yarmulke for the visit, Pence was escorted to the Western Wall by Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich (Rabinowitz), Chief Rabbi of the Western Wall and Director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation Mordechai ‘Soli’ Eliav.

    “Here, right above us, on the Temple Mount, King Solomon built the Temple,” Rabbi Rabinovich said as he escorted the Vice President.

    “We draw our strength from our deep connection to the land of the Bible and our commitment to [fulfill] the words of the Prophets.”

    The Vice President placed a note in the Western Wall, then said a brief prayer.

    Karen Pence prayed separately at the women’s section of the Wall.

    At the end of his visit, Pence signed the Western Wall guest book.

    “It is my great honor to pray here at this sacred place,” the Vice President wrote. “God bless the Jewish people and God bless the state of Israel always.”

    Responding to questions by reporters, the Vice President said the visit to the holy site was “very inspiring”.

    Accompanying Pence during the visit was US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and White House special envoy Jason Greenblatt.

    Earlier on Tuesday, the Vice President met with President Reuven Rivlin at the president’s residence in Jerusalem, before visiting the Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center.
