These ‘notes to God’ are being cleared from the Western Wall
ahead of Jewish New Year
Tens of thousands of written prayers are crammed into the wall’s crevices
by worshippers and visitors
Twice a year these prayers are cleared from ‘God’s mailbox’
making room for fresh ones
(SOUNDBITE) (Hebrew) WESTERN WALL RABBI, SHMUEL RABINOWITZ, SAYING:"Just like every year, this year on the eve of the New Year we clear the notes from the Western Wall. There are notes from all over the world."
