The Kotel in 1870

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom everyone!

I was pleasantly surprised to find an amazing picture on Wikipedia. It’s a picture of the Kotel (the Western-Wall) taken in 1870! 140 years ago! Imagine that!

Here is the photo (since so much time has passed, it is in the public domain.

I can day dream for a long time while looking at this picture, trying to imagine all the changes that happened in the world in the 140 years since this picture was taken, and all the changes in the near proximity of the Kotel.

One thing that did not change, and always intrigues me, is the shrubs growing and blooming from the crevices. For at least 140 years they’ve been there – never died, never changed. Here is a picture I took at the Kotel myself not long ago (click to enlarge):

Take your time and let your imagination carry you when you think about the changes the Kotel has “seen” in all these years, and how the shrubs remained every-green.

Blessing from the Holy Land,

Yours,

A picture from NYC subway

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Hello all,

As you know, I was recently invited to NYC to present Tweet Your Prayers. Here’s an interesting picture I took underground – waiting for the subway. Imagine that whoever wrote this had to come down to the tunnel, skip the tracks while avoiding incoming trains, and leave his mark. (click to enlarge)

With this message, whoever wrote it is not the usual graffiti-’delinquent’.
