I'm taking my son soon to Israel and can't wait to go to the wall.

My trip is just 2 weeks so I won't be able to do the 40 day thing..i needed to do that several years ago...but I will tell my son how my Dad (his grandpa) descends from the kohanim who prayed there....He will be amazed by it I'm sure. My first trip to the Wall was as a child with my Dad (a kohane) in 1972..May he rest in peace now..I will go there and pray for his soul and for messiah to come so he can live again. Amen

40 days at the kottel

I personally took a few months off from my work to pray at the kottel for 40 days. Not only did I get my long awaited wish answered immediately, but also I feel it is my biggest accomplishment in life. I established a one on one personal relationship with G-d, and that remains with me all the time, through my ups and downs of life. Thanks for all the info, but I think the most important is that you feel Hashem's Presence there like nowhere else.
