Veteran Israeli educator and Education Prize awardee Sarah Eliash was arrested this week on the Temple Mount on charges of praying at the site, activists in organizations advocating open Jewish prayer at the site said. Eliash ascended the site Thursday with a group that came to the Mount to view the site where the miracle of Hanukkah actually took place, and apparently was seen by Arab guards moving her lips, which they attributed to praying. The guards informed Israeli police, who took Eliash into custody for her “crime.”
