We felt the Faith of each person entering the Western Wall. Here, people met with various religions, yet, each believed in only One God. I see love in each other's eyes and some people really poured their hearts out and wept in prayer.

I watched people from all over the world place notes in the crevices on the wall & pray.Many of the women cried while praying. The men & women prayed separately. This was truly an emotional experience.

We did an organised tour of Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. The old city is amazingly beautiful and the wall is the main focal point, the place where you'll recognise. It all makes sense when you realise that the stone of Jesus was placed in the...More
