Amish tourists from the USA and Switzerland visited the Kotel yesterday and during their meeting with R' Shmuel Rabinowitz, (the "Kotel" Rabbi) they requested forgiveness from the Jewish people for their silence during the Holocaust
During their meeting they stressed they do no want anything in return from the Jewish people, and they are not trying to proselytize in any way. Rather, they wished to express their support for Israel and the Jewish people, which they didn't do in the past.
The presented a scroll to Rabbi Rabinowitz, containing their apology, and a guarantee that from now on the Amish would loudly proclaim their support for the Jewish people, specifically in face of the hatred and antisemitism from Iran. (source)
I was looking for a good photo from the Harrison Ford movie, "Witness", but alas, I couldn't find anything perfect for this post...
JoeSettler adds: I was at the Kotel when they were there. With their Kipas on, I wasn't sure who Amish and who was a Hassid.
