19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Ha Kotel, the night before Yom Kippur.

In Jerusalem, Israel the night before Yom Kippur 2019, over 100,000 people visited the Western Wall and received a blessing from the Chief Rabbi. With so many people present I was lucky to make my way near the hand washing area but no closer to the Wall itself. I raised my camera over my head taking several snap shots of this amazing crowd and the Jumbo screen.
