Tweet Your Prayers @TheKotel has arrived to your iPhone, iTouch or iPad!


Or you can scan this QR code if it’s more convenient for you:

App description:

This app is your direct channel to the Almighty God. With it you can easily and quickly send a prayer to the Western Wall (also known as “The Kotel“ or the “Wailing Wall” ) and it will be placed in between the stones. Your faith or geographical location does not matter – Holy Jerusalem is a few tapping of your fingers away.

The Western Wall in Jerusalem is the last remnant of the Second Temple and as such, it is believed there’s greater Divine presence around the Western Wall than anywhere else on earth. This is why for hundreds of years people have been placing notes with their prayers in the Wall’s crevices, believing that it serves as a direct line to the Almighty God.

Now this centuries-old tradition arrives to your iPhone.

@TheKotel for iPhone is based on the popular “Tweet Your Prayers” Twitter service — http://www.twitter.com/TheKotel — which brought the Western-Wall to the Twitter age. It is a successful service on Twitter that’s received worldwide recognition and coverage, serving many thousands in the short period of time of its existence.

Visit http://www.tweetyourprayers.org for plenty of information on this service.

You can send a prayer in any language supported by your iPhone keyboard.

 

Here’s a quick review of the app by the AppReviewGuys (thanks Tom!):

Development:

First of all, this iPhone app is the volunteer work of Mr. Yoram Berkowicz, who created this app for free, so you could enjoy it and send your prayers to the Western-Wall as easily as possible. It was truly humble of him to put in a lot of work and effort for the greater good. Thank you YB!

Translators:

The @theKotel app was translated to many languages by many kind volunteers. This is the place to acknowledge and appreciate their work and devotion:

About:

As the last remnant of the Second Temple, the Western-Wall in Jerusalem (also known as The Kotel) is believed to have a greater Divine presence than anywhere else on earth. For hundreds of years, people have placed notes with their prayers in the Wall’s crevices, believing that it serves as a direct channel to the Almighty.

Tweet Your Prayers @TheKotel was born from the belief that the Western-Wall should be easily accessible to all people – from all over the world – and for free. As the name suggests, this service was originally launched on Twitter, where it was quickly adopted by many and given much attention around the world.

Offering this service on Twitter showed us the great impact that sending prayers to Jerusalem can have. We learned that many lives were touched, even changed, through the simple act of sending a prayer to the Western-Wall. It soon became clear that this service should be accessible beyond Twitter, so mobile apps for iPhone and Android are now available. Our mission is to facilitate prayer, because we realize that the more people we reach, the more impact we have, and the more lives are touched. It’s as simple as that!
