Was up before sunrise to photograph services at the Wall by those who believe strongly. I photographed on Hashanah Rabbah. What an amazing event. Get there at about 5:30 a.m. to truly see and understand such events.

Went there several times during our trip. Better to go in the evening to not deal with the crowds. Wear the appropriate clothing. Women visit the wall on one end and the men visit the wall on the other end. Look up and see the...More

The holiest place for Jews. However, all religions come to the Western Wall to see the spirituality, and to ask requests from God.
