A quick update for the new Shana

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom all!

As you probably know, this evening we bid farewell to the 5772nd Jewish year – Tash’ab, and welcome with open arms the 5773rd year, Tash’ag.

I thought I’d take a moment to write my blessings for the new year and also let you know what has been going on with Tweet Your Prayer @TheKotel in recent months and what is planned for the future.

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been tweeting regularly from @TheKotel’s account in past months. I have been dealing with a several burdens in my personal life, which has been very demanding in many respects, including time-wise. Unfortunately, and it pains me to write, one of the compromises I had to make in order to keep my head above water was with the daily tweeting and sharing of news, sights and views from the Holy Land. However, prayers were, and are, still processed and placed in the Western-Wall (with great help from good people in Jerusalem). That was my top priority. I had to make concessions, and I chose delivering prayers as a top priority, over communicating and spreading the message of @TheKotel across the web. It just made sense that the least I could do was to keep what exists working.

I tried letting other people tweet from @TheKotel’s account, hoping they would fill in the void I left, until the time arrives when I’m able to tweet myself again. That didn’t work out too well, I’m afraid.

My goal for the new year is to resume tweeting, facebooking and communicating with all of you, and take @TheKotel to new heights. Your support and love over the years is making me strong, and I appreciate it. I’m confident that in Tash’ag Tweet Your Prayers @TheKotel would see wonderful things :) .

 

And now, a few words for the new Jewish year.

May we have a year of happiness.

A year of success.

A year of love and health.

A year in which others see the beauty in us and in themselves.

A year with protection, when no threats lie above and one man accepts the other for who he is.

A year in which we accept the bad with the good, keeping our chin up and a smile on.

A year of peace, and of free hugs (and lots of them).

A year in which we achieve our goals – our personal goals, our goals as a spouse, a parent, a child and a collective in a peace seeking society.

A year of sweetness, like the sweet and incredibly yummy Challah my mother baked for Rosh HaShana, pictured below :)

 

All the best from the Holy Land & Shana Tova! :)

Pictures from the Kotel – Placing the Prayers

   Posted by: Alon   in

On October 2nd I went to Jerusalem with a big box full of prayers. 3,812 of your prayers were placed in the Western-Wall that day. Since there were so many prayers to carry and place, I had my childhood friend Dan accompany me in the trip. Below are just some of the many pictures we took that day. I have more touching pictures (and videos!) I’ll share with you soon.

Click on a picture to enlarge:

Dan knows where”s the final destination:

Time to place some prayers:

We ran out of places to put the prayers so Dan, who is taller than I am (ex-basketball player) and has longer arms, helped putting remaining prayers deep inside the crevice:

And eventually (it took so long!):

Inside the wall it looked like a river of blue prayers!
