"IT'S NOT THE HAT !!!!" Israel Favorite Tip by DAO
Israel General: 271 reviews and 259 photos
Years ago when I visited the Wailing Wall, I had the good fortune to be travelling with a young lady. We noticed that people were walking toward the Wall and we approached. Suddenly we found ourselves being shouted at form every direction. That was when we realised we had walked past a large box containing cardboard Kippahs or Yarmulkes. Essentially small, round head coverings. We retreated back to the box, fished out 2 suitable examples and placed them on our heads.
Forward we went again. And now more shouting! Again in Hebrew!
Finally I heard a voice (slightly Biblical).
“It’s not the hat! It’s the woman!”
Yes, that’s right; I was in the right place (actually the left side) in the Men’s section. Women pray in the section on the right. So I shed (temporarily) my female companion.
(There was a happy ending)
