Family at Western Wall, Jerusalem

Not only is the Western Wall in Jerusalem not the “wailing wall” you’d expect, it is a downright happy place. Most of the activity when I was there surrounded around boys having their Bar Mitzvah ceremony. There is so much demand to have your Bar Mitzvah there it almost seems like an assembly line. Women have to pray at a separate section of the wall and so you see a long line on women peering over the wall watching their male relatives.
