Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump wrote a note to be placed in the Western Wall.

The note, which was handwritten, was given to one of Trump’s advisers to be delivered to the wall.

The note, which was photographed by Trump’s staff and sent to the Israeli Hebrew-language daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, reads:”Lord. May you bless the United States, our armed forces and our allies. May your guiding hand protect and strengthen our great nation.”

According to Ynet, Trump wrote the note following a conversation with his daughter, Ivanka, who is Jewish.

Worshipers traditionally push notes into the crevices of the Western Wall, a former holding wall for the Second Temple and the last part of the Temple that still stands. The Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest spot.
