  The western wall and the people praying
by ophiro

The Western Wall (in Hebrew Ha'kotel Ha'ma'aravi) is a holy place for the jewish people and there is a custom to come to the place and pray for god and put a note with a wish between the rocks.

Another custom is to make a bar-mitzva in the place for young jewish boys when they arrive 13.
