Nice Story - though unlikely

While this is a great story it is unlikely that it actually happened, as it is well known that the kvitlach placed in the kotel are cleaned before every Rosh Hashana(and Pesach)

Does anyone know when the custom of cleaning notes out of the Wall began? Because these days they're removed right before Rosh Hashana (and Passover).

God bless.

The Almighty works in mysterious ways!

I totally believe this story! In my 54 years,I've had similar things like this happen to me!, and I've heard of even more bizarre things happening to other people! Like they say...GOD works in mysterious ways!!!

These Videos have meant so much to me

Wanted to add how much your videos have meant to me, they are my favorite content on Aish, if you do read comments. Also, a cherished love one, graduated from YULA girls in L.A., and it brings me joy to know you were there.

Thank You

Hi Chaya,
I want to apologize for my delay in responding to this.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for this message. I'm so happy that the videos have been able to have an impact. Thank you for watching.
It is also so nice to hear from a YULA alumnus! I spent 5 of the best years of my life there and miss it tremendously. Looking forward to being in touch.
All the best!
