Shofars were sounded in Kever Rochel after US President Trump visited Bet Lechem and met with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) on Tuesday, 27 Iyar 5777. The shofar blowing was part of a tikun after hearing of the terror attacks taking place around the world.
Even with the closure of the holy site during Trump’s presence in Bet Lechem, limud Torah continued inside.
