On Tuesday, 24 Elul, September 24, starting at 10:30am, Western Wall Heritage Foundation staff will remove notes placed between the stones of the Wall. They will then be transferred to the Mount of Olives where they will be buried along with sacred pages and books brought for geniza.
Millions of notes are placed between the Western Wall stones every year by worshippers and visitors from Israel and around the world, Jews and non-Jews, including notes sent via the Western Wall website, by fax, and by mail.
During these days prior to the High Holidays, the Western Wall Plaza fills with thousands of worshippers from around Israel and the world, with the number rising during the High Holidays themselves.
