If you visit Jerusalem you must visit the Western Wall. To see the men praying at the wall and the thousands of prayers written on tiny pieces of paper inserted into the crevices throughout is part of understanding why Jerusalem is so important to the Jewish people. It is more than a reminder of a history of survival and personal loss, it is a reminder of hope. If you are a man arriving without a head covering, a free yalmulcha (Kipp ah) is provided, but you must wear one to be admitted near the wall. There is also an optional laver (faucets to wash your hands) before you enter. You may observe the orthodox "shuckling" (swaying slowly forward and back) as they pray. To many, this wall is a testimony that someday (soon?) faith will be accompanied by sight.

The holiest place for the jewish people. Called also the Western Wall or The Wailing Wall. The area is very big and divided to men part and women part. People write requests on tiny papers and stick them into the cracks in the wall. These are addressed to God. The wall is very big and tall believed to be the western wall of the last temple, Two thousands years old. The visit is very impressive . Exit the place we took a taxi to the Machne Yehuda market.

Even for a Christian, this was a moving experience. This time of year it was not terribly crowded but busy enough. For security reasons, everyone and their belongings must be screened. The wall is now divided so that men, who must don a kippah which is provided as a souvenir, and women are separated....

Even for a Christian, this was a moving experience. This time of year it was not terribly crowded but busy enough. For security reasons, everyone and their belongings must be screened. The wall is now divided so that men, who must don a kippah which is provided as a souvenir, and women are separated. No photos are permitted closer than a certain point. It is very moving to see people praying against the wall or seated in chairs near the wall. I, too, took advantage of the opportunity to pray at this incredibly historic religious site. There are restrooms very close by.
