Madonna, in Israel, Visits the Western Wall

Madonna made a late-night visit to the Western Wall.

Accompanied by bodyguards, Madonna on Sunday night visited Judaism’s holiest site and toured the attached underground tunnels. A crowd of paparazzi followed the pop diva.

Madonna arrived in Israel accompanied by her children for two concerts in Tel Aviv. The concerts Tuesday and Wednesday are the final performances on her “Sticky and Sweet” tour.

The singer is scheduled to meet at the end of the week with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Tzipi Livni.

Madonna last visited Israel in 2006 for Yom Kippur, which she celebrated with 2,000 other Kabbalah followers. She has not converted to Judaism.
