A long history and future for the Kotel E-mail

The Western Wall, the Kotel, stands at over 60 feet high and is over 180 feet long. Despite its modest name, it is the most signifi cant site for Jews worldwide. It is what we look towards when we pray, it is where we return in our dreams. It is our eternal link to our past and our hope for the future. It is the last remnant of the Temple and a place that Jews from around the world gather to pray.

People write notes to G-d and slip them between the ancient stones of the Wall. Modernity has afforded us ways to transfer those messages electronically from Asia and elsewhere and have them delivered and placed for us.
