Palestinian rioters opened fire on IDF soldiers safeguarding 3,000 Jewish worshippers at Joseph’s Tomb near Nablus on Wednesday night.
Rocks and bricks were thrown at the crowd, who were praying, and their IDF escorts.
The attack escalated when an automatic weapon was used to shoot at the soldiers, who returned fire.
New Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis will attend the opening of JW3, London's £50 million Jewish community centre, on October 1.
He will give a speech and attach the centre's mezuzah, which has been designed by world-renowned artist Sir Anish Kapoor.
