Is there a custom for people who go to the kotel to exchange a coin, like a shekel, then after being at the kotel, give back the coins?
I can see a range of questions including advice for camera shots and the like.
Think of the area as a plaza. An open space. No tickets required. No cafe "onsite" but within walking distance.
For those wishing to be in close proximity and pray, there is an area for women on one side of a small screen. Otherwise, think of it as an open space. Many photos available on line make that plain. Best days to go there? Avoid the Holy Days and High Holy Days if you are not participating and only wish to view the Wall for your own reasons.
There is an air conditioned section for women as well. In fact it overlooks the portion where the men sit. Additionally, women have access to a unique portion of the wall, a small area said to be directly opposite the holy of holies. Men can pass thru on the tunnel tours but only women are allowed access to pray.
when is the quietest time to go and visit the wall - which day, what time of day? thanks in advance!
I am a Christian leader and a Pastor Praying daily for Israel and have set up initiative through which we mobilize, motivate and inspires hundreds of church leaders to be praying as well as encouraging their congregations to join in Praying regularly for Israel.
The following are my need;
1. I need a friend who have similar experience and can guide me on how I can do more as the harvest here is huge
2. Literature materials on the activities
3. Any other items that I may find useful
