A place of worship for many people. Modest clothing is recommended. Bring some water and cover your head as in sunny weather it could be really hot

We visited the Western Wall last week during our comprehensive tour of the Old City including the Beautiful Jewish Quarter. We prayed @ the Western "Wailing Wall" and inserted our prepared prayers on slips of paper between the ancient limestone stones. Be prepared for many steps as you descent from the Cafes of Hurva Synagogue Square, and also for the... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Nothing like spending a Friday night davening right next to the holiest place on earth. Siddurim abound, along with a minyan every few feet. Terrific for anyone looking for a special type of davening to enhance their trip to Jerusalem.
