The crying wall
The more I feel about this place, the more I dont know how to talk about it. People who are Jewish or Christian, come here to feel closer to God. Touching the wall with your hand is like stroking the wounds of the Jewish people for thousands of years. Put a note with prayers in the wall and pass the heart to God.
When praying, men and women have to enter the square wall, men must wear traditional hats, because the Jews think that the wall is God, if you put your head to God is disrespectful to him. If you encounter the end of the Sabbath, you can also see Jews gathering at the Wailing Wall to have a party and dinner. This is also not seen in peacetime.
Every visitor to Jerusalem will come to the Wailing Wall and feel the faith and culture passed down by the Jews. The Wailing Wall is the only remaining ruins of the Second Temple of the Ancient Jewish State. It is the spiritual home of the Jewish people who have been displaced for more than two thousand years and is the most sacred place in the Jewish mind. They gather here, pray, confide to God, or touch the wall with their hands, just like the wounds of the millennial people of the Jewish people; or whispering the verses to remember the history of national glory; or the paper that will pray The strips are tucked into the wall and the stone seems to be able to pass the wish to God's heart.
Crying wallpaper can't be looked at
It is said that the Jews think that God is above the "Wailing Wall", here is "the closest place to God." Just write your wish and put it in the wall, God will let you do so. The Jewish followers who came here pilgred the prayers of God on the note and stuffed them into the cracks in the wall. Tourists from all over the world, whether they believe in religion or not, have joined in the fun of writing a wish note to God and stuffing it into the wall. Even when the pope, the US president, and other politicians visit Jerusalem, they have to write a piece of paper into the wall.
There is an unwritten rule about God's note: respect for privacy, not looking at other people's notes. Because the crying wallpaper is a dialogue with God, it is forbidden to peep or use it for any other purpose. However, there are cases where the note is turned over and even publicized.
Walk not only to watch the temples or monuments, but to "read" a city with thousands of years of history. Orthodox Jews wearing black hats and robes with their families are firmly heading to the Wailing Wall; Christians from all over the world march on the path of the crucifixion of Jesus, savoring the last moment of the Savior in the world; in the tall mosque The voice of the ceremonies spread far and wide, this is the holy city of Jerusalem, the other side of the faith.
After the destruction of the Second Temple, a wall in the west was preserved. In the Byzantine era, the Jews were allowed to come to the Western Wall once a year on the anniversary of the destruction of the temple, crying and praying for the restoration of the Zion. This famous "Wailing Wall" has been achieved. For more than two thousand years, the Jews who have been displaced and drifted all over the country will work hard all the time to return to the holy city of Jerusalem, to face the Wailing Wall, to remembrance the glory of the once kingdom, to tell God about their own suffering, and to pray silently. The Wailing Wall is also regarded as the last spiritual home of the Jews and the most sacred place in the mind. It is said that there is a direct dialogue with God here. Many Jews are here, and they can't help but shed tears. Put the note with the wish into the stone crevice of the Wailing Wall, hope that God can see it.
Many believers write their wishes or mourning words on paper into the cracks in the wall.
In the early years of the Christian era, Christians in Europe generally believed that Jerusalem, the birthplace of Jesus, was the end of Europe. This wall is the boundary between Europe and Asia.
The Wailing Wall is about two-thirds, separated by a fence, separated by men and women. The places where men prayed accounted for two points, and they were closer to the place where the ark was stored in the temple. From the division of the Wailing Wall, we can also see the difference in status between men and women in Judaism.
