Tour the Kotel Plaza with Google Street View!

Google’s street view cars hit the streets of Israel a couple of months ago, carefully indexing the Holy Land. Apparently, they somehow found their way to the Western-Wall Plaza too! Have a look:

As real as it gets

Shalom all!

I know many of your don’t have the luxury I’m fortunate enough to have – to have Holy Jerusalem within reach!

I found these amazing spherical virtual tours and I think this is as close as one can get without actually being in the Western-Wall! I hope you enjoy them! Play around with your mouse on the virtual Western-Wall below!

 


 

Blessings from the Holy Land,

One Kotel, Many Prayers (Pictures)

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom everyone!

Last Thursday’s trip to Jerusalem was one of the most fun I’ve had. There was such a festive atmosphere there, with many Bar-Mitzvah celebrations, and no one could stay nonchalant.
Here are a few pictures from last week’s ride to Jerusalem. Many beautiful pictures from Jerusalem will be added to the Gallery section soon!

Click on any photo to enlarge.

First thing’s first – arriving to the right place!

Taking your prayers to the Kotel itself:

…and making sure the Kippa (Yarmulke ) sits securely on my head:

Looking for my special niche in the Western Wall…

…and finally getting set up:

many minutes and many prayers later that day…

More pictures to come!

VIDEO – Placing your prayers!

Shalom everyone!

It took me a long time to edit and upload to the web, but I think you’ll enjoy the end product. Here’s a 2 minute clip my friend Dan and I shot at the Western-Wall some time ago, when we took 3,812 prayers with us.




What do you think? 🙂

Yours with love from the Holy Land,

Alon
