Its GODS !!
Wonerful to see. I would only pray this would be shown to all school age children across America so to understand the Importance of what's at stake it would open the door to understanding how full of God Israel really is and not the negative picture public schools in America teach and how absolutely positive the experience of seeing it with your own eyes can be one way or the other it will touch you for life. support for Israel is Important for America as a nation and for Israel for a Country so when I see this site I understand GODS working. Aish is a place for young and old I will share it with my friends and family so they can see the wall Thanks for the hard work but so much to do. yes!.

I miss my Jewish friends!
I moved from Los Angeles, CA to Tucson, AZ, IN 1967. I was 8 yrs. old. I became close friends with my neighbor, Heather Aronoff, who was the same age as me, and Jewish. I got to celebrate all the Jewish holidays with Heather, her brothers, parents, both grandmothers, and a grandfather! They treated me like a member of their family. I have not seen her since a friends wedding in Aug. 1981. My now 31 yr. old son was 3 weeks old, and cried every time Heather held him-she had a bony chest! The year b4 my son was born, while living in L.A. and attending cosmetology school, I became close friends with Belinda Levy and her husband Paul. I celebrated all the Jewish holidays with them, their parents, and grandparents. Belinda was with me when I had my son! She was like a sister to me, and I still have a small, beautiful plate she brought me from Israel. So for the first half of my life Jewish culture was prominent in my LIFE, but LIFE got in the way, and I lost touch with all my jewish friends. I miss them so much. My only connection to them is the Matzo ball soup I sill eat!

Longing to Return
Although I am not a Jew, my visit to Jerusalem and to the Wall were high points of my life. Truly, I was more moved than I expected to be and although I visited the holy places of my own Christian traditon, I also prayed at the wall and was surprised at the power of that spiritual experience. I felt so close to G-d there. I have longed to return ever since. I support and pray always for the people of Israel and for peace in that region. I was warmly welcomed and helped by many.

The Kotel is more than a relic of the past
Israel is currently under the threat of extinction. Its legitimacy is questioned by even former former Allies, and its citizens are split into secular and religious sects. The Kotel is a unifying factor. It is a source of strength and meaning to the Mourners and also the Celebrants of joyous events. It unifies all with the feeling of praying to G-d in his chosen site. If all Jews can feel they are one people, praying to one G-d, they may become entitled to G-d's assistance to be able to be victorious over their enemies, and live in Peace.

This is the next best thing to being there.
I last visited in 1999 and I am overdue for another visit. I have wished I could relocate, but probably another visit will have to do. When I was in Israel, especially in Jerusalem and Safed, I felt the presense of God more intensely than at home in my daily life. There is no doubt that it is closer to heaven. May there be continued peace, a new and stronger peace for Israel, and all of the rest of the world.

I first visited Israel in 1993 with a Christian group, and went again in 1995, 1997 and 1999. I cried each time I left. Today I am an observant Jew. I love the land. It has been a long journey, but it has been all a blessing.
