The Letters Written to G-d

At the Kotel – the Wailing Wall; the last outer wall of the Holy Temple of the Jews in Jerusalem now considered the closest a Jew can get to the Temple – so many people come to pray there – people write notes as well as pray.  Sometimes if a person can get there themselves they will ask a friend to put their note in at the Wall. Two times a year before Passover and before Sukkot the city government cleans out the notes and buries them together the same as any writing that has G-d’s name in it.
They are considered holy.
Sometimes it is hard to find more space in the crevices.
Or you have to reach high.
Supervised by a Rabbi; the holy work of cleaning the Kotel.

See – you don’t have to be Jewish to leave a note.
