The sole remaining wall of Herod's temple in Jerusalem is the closest a Jewish worshiper can now get to the Holy of Hollies. This 2000 year old structure is a focal point for the faithful worldwide. In the short time I spent there I met pilgrims from Europe, South Africa, the USA, and of course Israel. As a non-Jew I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at the wall but the overwhelming feeling was one of welcome. As long as I was courteous and respectful, folks seemed happy for me to be there.
Of course the Western Wall is not the only place Jews pray in Jerusalem. As I was walking through a market I came across this Hasidic man taking a break from his fruit stall to pray.
