I prepared this short blog post to show you, in pictures, how the prayer-processing looks on my end. Hope you enjoy:
1. Printing: After the prayers have been received, the next step is printing them. Fortunately, I posses the amazing one-of-a-kind prayer printer!
2. Rolling: When the printer has finished printing (or, the toner ran out), the pages are cut to strips using a utility knife. Then the strips are rolled into small scrolls. Here’s how it looks like when we’re just getting started:
And a good few hours later:
3. Driving: Now that the prayers are ready, it’s time to go to Jerusalem!(I should mention that this road-sign was photographed while I was at the passenger’s seat ):
4. Getting inside the Old City: We have arrived in Jerusalem. The Old City has a wall surrounding it, and the Jaffa Gate is the nearest place to go through:
We have reached the Western Wall – the Kotel! Here’s a picture of a wooden box filled with prayers with the Western Wall in the background:
Here’s a picture of me standing on a chair, sticking my hand inside the Wall:
These are just some of the prayers that were placed. At the end of the day, all the prayers from the box found their final resting place in the Western-Wall.
