Photo Friday 01.10: Western Wall

The Kotel, also known as the Western wall or Wailing wall, is one of the most sacred sites places for the Jews

On a quiet 2007 December Friday evening, I landed in Tel Aviv and went straight to Jerusalem to witness Shabbat celebrations at the western wall. It was quite a wonderful experience.

It is believed that this wall is the last remnant of the Second Temple and has been the site for prayers and worship for centuries.

Located behind the wall is Dome of the Rock, which I thought was the most interesting site in Israel.
