Calling it a day

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

I’m calling it a day. Going to sleep in a few minutes. The past two days haven’t been easy. It has come to a situation in which there’s an actual chance I’ll have to shut down operation. I don’t want to do it, but for reasons I’d rather not get into it might be the least bad option.

However, despite walking around with a sad face throughout the day, I’d like to go to sleep with a sense of optimism. I see once again how much this service means to you, and how eager you are to help. It is you guys why I keep going and it would be a great thing if you’ll also provide the solutions that would help me stay around. I started this whole thing with an intent to do something really big, that would touch people’s lives and make a change. I see how it has brought the best of you. I’ll try, I promise. The past few weeks have been amazing, and I truly feel this has great, incredible potential to make something extraordinary happen. You are why I feel this way, and you’re why I’m going to fight for a solution.

Whatever happens next, thank you for being a part of this amazing journey. I hope this project made a change, even a small one, in your lives. It certainly changed mine.

Good night my friends,

I cherish you all.

Can’t help except by praying and giving charity if we don’t know what the problems are.

Too big too fast sounds like the root of it. You need a management team that knows how to build scalable non-profit organizations. I unfortunately don’t have that expertise.

In my own life, I’ve been looking for belief that my dreams can come true “against all odds.” I wish that for the @TheKotel project, as well.

After all, it is the story and lesson of the Jewish people: flourishing against all odds.

Shalom, and thanks for doing this!

We will continue to pray. If all else fails. What about a small fee. I will be willing in order to keep this wonderful, wonderful service.

Your service has given me so much hope, has changed me life forever. I have seen the power of the wall and now truly believe that G-d never leaves the wall. This has inspired me to travel to Israel and visit the wall myself one day. I am going to open a savings account soon. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with all of us and giving us so much. I wish you all the best and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
