The Wonder of the Western Wall
At God's holy hill
While some such celebrations at the Western Wall are quiet and simple, others are quite festive and traditional – including canopies, friends blowing ram’s horns, drummers, a cantor, perhaps even a rabbi. An important part of the event is the young man reading from the Torah – traditional scrolls containing the first five books of the Bible.
