A truly surreal experience - religious or not !! Where Judaism meets Christianity and Islam ... For me, a moving experience to pray at the open air Wailing Wall - separated for men and women to pray separately - listen to the rabbi readings in Hebrew - This was worth more than the various Shrines and 2-3 hour lines to...

it doesn't get any more breathtaking than this. It is as if you have been transported to a plain of emotion, it is so beautiful. Be advised that there are two sides (one for women, one for men). You must dress appropriately.

I am not Jewish, but this has always been on my bucket list. To get to the wall you have to go through a security checkpoint- from which ever gate you enter. Women and men are separated. At the men section they get a kippa and they need to ensure that their knees are covered. Women need have the shoulders... More

Men and Women have separate areas, women can go up to the wall, touch and pray, leave small prayer notes and feel the impact of... More

Visiting the Western Wall or the Wailing Wall in the Old City is a great experience. You'll see people of various faiths approach the wall and pray -- some for a very long time. Many people write short notes/prayers on small slips of paper and then fold them up and when they get up to the wall, they stick the... More

Praying at the Wall is a unique spiritual experience. You realy feel closer to God. Its a memorable experience, standing there before that wall, looking around at the crowds, pondering the generations that have been here before, overwhelmed by the atmosphere of prayer, sensing that you are part of something much bigger than yourself. There are people with hearts of... More
