Visiting the Western Wall in Jerusalem was one of the most heartwarming experiences of my life. I had heard so much about the significance of this site, and as a non-Jew, I was curious to see it for myself.
As I approached the wall, I was struck by the sheer number of people there. The Western Wall plaza was packed with Jews from all over the world, some deep in prayer, others placing notes in the cracks of the wall.
I watched as a group of guys gathered at the wall, singing and dancing in celebration. Their joy was infectious, and I found myself smiling along with them. They noticed my attention and pulled me into the moment which was something I’ll never forget.
As I stood there, gazing up at the wall, I felt a deep sense of connection to something much bigger than myself. I may not be Jewish, but I felt the power of the history and the spirituality of the Western Wall.
Leaving the wall that day, I felt a renewed sense of hope and gratitude for the simple act of coming together to pray, to connect, and to share in the joy and sorrow of life. The Western Wall may be a physical structure, but it is the people who gather there who make it truly special.
