It was bound to happen sooner or later..

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

I worked all day to process and prepare your prayers for printing so I could make them into notes tonight and tomorrow and have them ready on time for Thursday’s ride to the Western-Wall. I am using the famous World’s 1st Prayer-Printer, as you already know 🙂 .

Everything ran smoothly at first but a few pages into printing… the printer ran out of toner. It was bound to happen sooner or later! Not to mention I just printed 3,812 prayers a week and some ago.

Prayer Printer is out of toner

This means that unfortunately, I’ll have a tight schedule tomorrow. I guess I’ll have to run to the store tomorrow and buy a new cartridge, and than hope to get them all cut & rolled to small scrolls by the end of the day. I’m leaving for Jerusalem early Thursday so there’s no other option but to do it all tomorrow.. It’s going to be hectic!

Yours from the Holy Land,

Tweet Your Prayers in pictures

Shalom all!

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:

And eventually…

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.
