I visited on a Sabbath. There were many people but not overcrowded. This is a very important site for the Jewish so please be respectful when you visit. I was glad to have visited and shared in this wonderful experience.

So much joy and life and spirituality and celebration. Daytime and nighttime. Quiet or busy. Don't use your phone by the wall. Just enjoy the moment and respect everyone's space.

An amazing experience in one of the most holy places. There are few different ways to get there, each time we choose a different one.

There aren't adequate words to describe the experience of going to the Western Wall of the Temple. People from every corner of the world come here to pray. Amazing historical site as well. These walls have seen thousands of years of history, from opulence to wars, yet the holiness remains. Highly recommend to experience the holiness of this special site.... More

The best part of this experience for us was going on Friday evening at sun-down, at the beginning of the Sabbath. Please dress modestly so as not to offend those that are there to worship. Stand back for a few moments and watch the traditions they deem common courtesy so you can act appropriately. Then..... jump in and participate! We... More

Just note that there's a men's section and women's section of the Western Wall. And when we were there the women's side was far more crowded and you needed to wait your turn to put your prayer into the Wall. This is one of the holiest sites for Jews and it feels moving to experience that importance in person. Also... More

Aka the wailing wall. This ancient wall is a place to visit if you are in Jerusalem. Please note that the men are expected to wear a kippah which are available as you approach the wall. The women have a separate area of the wall to approach - on the right side. People stand as close as they can to... More
