The wailing wall13

The image was presenting people in front of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Judaism regards the wall as the first holy place. For thousands of years, when Jews from all corners of the world returned to the Holy City of Jerusalem, they would come to this wall to whisper their prayers and cry about their exile.
