Western Wall Jerusalem Israel

Western Wall Jerusalem Israel



The Western (or Wailing) Wall not only is significant
for the Jewish people
but it is historically significant.
It dates from 19 BCE.

Watching believers pray
is free
but please respect this holy site.

Oh, because Jerusalem is full of religious sites,
wear conservative clothing
(long pants, covered shoulders).

Almost every space in the very crowded old city
is either historically significant
or important to at least one religious group.
That means respect from the seasoned traveler.
It also means as much free history
as your eyeballs can hold.

You’ll be greeted by “friendly” people
wanted to show you around.
As with most cities,
this is a common tourist scam,
the guides expecting to be paid
and paid well.
Say no thank you
and move on.
