I visited Israel years ago with my husband and my parents. My dad's little dog, coco got sick right before we left. My sister was taking care of him. I know that he placed a pray note in the wall for coco. We went on to have a wonderful trip and saw all of the amazing sights. The thing is we knew that something was different than any other country we had visited. It was a feeling , hard to describe, but eventually we realized that it was because we were walking on holy ground and it affects your whole self, physically, mentally, spiritually, everything. I love to watch this cam of the Western Wall. It is peaceful to me.
shemá israel adonai elohenu adonai echad shabat shalom
Who believes that the Orthodox would allow a restaurant and hotel on such a sacred small plot of land so close to the Kotel....the same group that will not build modern restroom facilities for women as they built for the men.The construction replaces the old torn down shack that was used as a police sub station and visitors question answering area.
They are building a restaurant and Hotel
do not you know anyone what is building?
Barbara , thanks for the view of the dig ,excellent can see more of the site, often wish we had a moveable camera to see more .
23dec18--Barbara, Excellent image. Thank You.
I have just uploaded a photo taken in mid October 2018 showing the construction site
Looks like there is another lift to go up judging by the re-bar and key ways
How high is the forefront building going to be?
i was at the western wall last month on a cruise. it was a breath taking experience there. you read about the western wall, hear about it, see it all these years. shalom! sababa!
