The Jewish history of Jerusalem and spirituality all come together and in gulf you when you touch these ancient stones originally built by King Herod as a wall supporting the 2nd Jewish Temple above. Now it’s the only remains of the magnificent Temple and a symbolic place of prayer and worship. According to Jewish tradition the 3rd Temple will be built when the Messiah comes so in the meantime the western Wall the Kotel remains the spiritual gateway to prayers and wishes.

The Western wall is of course well known to everyone as a historical spot and holy palce for Jews. New for us was to find they have separate sections for men and women, and there is an inner section under the building (men only) where it is like a library with many books on display. The inner section is actually much larger than the visible outside portion of the wall.

This is a different kind of review for me. It makes me crazy that the Kotel (Western Wall) is considered a tourist attraction. It's not! It's actually the closest that the Jewish people are able to get to the site of their temple, so it's the place they (we) go to pray. Don't think "everyone has a place to pray in Israel" as I sadly see people write. The Jewish people are simply making do with the only place they can because the Israel government permitted Muslims to manage the true site and the Muslims who manage the site do not practice the same generosity. So if you choose to visit the Western Wall, be 100% respectful of the people who are praying there! Do NOT take photos or a person in his/her most sacred moment. Do not talk. Do not point at people. And please cover your shoulders and knees the same way you do when entering a holy church, temple, synagogue, gompa, etc. Do, however, enjoy the beautiful moment there of men dancing and singing, of people praying for good with all their hearts. It is a most special place. If you come, consider what it would be like to not be permitted to worship in your most holy spot. Consider saying a prayer for freedom, respect of life and dignity, and for your loved ones to share the planet with love and freedom.
