    One of the most popular sites in Jerusalem is the kever of Dovid HaMelech, located on Har Tzion in the Old City. Jews are mispallel at the tziyun regularly, and Christians come to conduct tours and ceremonies – both out of respect for Dovid HaMelech, which is holy to everyone, and because they have an Avoda Zara myth about the location.

    In a picture that went viral on social media, one of the regular Mispalillim, Reb Shraga Brand, was seen putting Tefillin on a priest. Reb Shraga is at the site daily, as he puts tefillin on Jews who come to visit the area.

    Rabbi Yitzchak Gabay uses his Facebook page to tell this particular story, based on the photo that hit social media.

    “This was when the priest came with a group of nuns to visit the tziyun, and the chossid, whose name was Rabbi Shraga Brand felt that he should ask the priest something personal …”

    “Are you Jewish?” He asked him, and the answer was positive.

    The priest merited putting on tefillin for the first time in his life, and meet with ahavas Yisrael, which is able to overcome gaps like religious affiliation and clothing.
