My visit to the Kottel/Western Wall was a flying visit , my first in over a year . As one might imagine the area of The Kottel has changed considerably since the covid 19 outbreak - this can be seen in the pictures I took . There are special prayer areas laid out , and the whole area has the appearance of a maze .Those that wish to pray , are expected to observe the usual covid rules - face covering, and social distancing etc . My advice ( for men ) is NOT to use a disposable kippal (head coverings for men ) which are located near the entrance to the men's side , but to bring ones own kippal if at all possible - even purchasing a kippal in the world famous arab market , is risky these days , unless one washes it BEFORE use . BTW , I DID have a good time

This was my first visit in a year, since the Corona pandemic started in March 2020. I noticed and assessed the changes. This place remains,as ever, the holiest place for the Jewish people, and as such, it is venerated and visited with great frequency, and by large numbers. There was no investigation or screening of vaccine or immunity status. There was no limitation on the numbers. Since we were part of a “Son of Commandment”ritual, we were assigned a restricted capsule enclosed in gigantic three meter high heavy plastic sheets with a large white tent structure over the top- ours was G3, and you can view here my ”helpful” photos. People were confined to pray inside the plastic enclosures, but free to wander in the passageways between them. The place remains accessible and holy- so utilized and respect that. As my friends and followers know, I have been here well over a hundred times since 1978, and I have reviewed this site on TripAdvisor ten times- so feel free to read and benefit from past years’ reviews. .

Very interesting
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on January 30, 2021

This is quite fascinating to experience, definitely worth a visit. Of course, it is a very tall wall but given it's significance in the religious context it seems quite surreal watching the prayers being completed. Some people put their foreheads against the stones, or even kiss the wall. The Western (or wailing) wall is...

This is quite fascinating to experience, definitely worth a visit. Of course, it is a very tall wall but given it's significance in the religious context it seems quite surreal watching the prayers being completed. Some people put their foreheads against the stones, or even kiss the wall. The Western (or wailing) wall is the closest place to the Temple Mount and therefore is thought to be the holiest place for Jews to pray. Very interesting indeed!
