Wailing Wall (3 of 3)

This was a close up of a Jew praying at the Wall. They believe since it is the last remaining wall of the Temple, that God is protecting it and to lay hands on the wall or put prayers on paper and shove them in the cracks of the wall, is to communicate more directly with him. That's probably a horrible description, but I'm not a Rabbi!
The sense of respect and overall reverence for God, held by these Law abiding Jews, was inspirational to say the least.
