Rosh HaShana 2018

The following video is from the Western Wall, sometimes identified as the Wailing Wall. The Western Wall is considered by many Jews to be the among the holiest places in the world because of it’s proximity to the last temple. The Western Wall itself was not part of the Temple, rather it is a retaining wall that supports the platform upon which the Temple stood.

It is tradition for Jews to gather at the Western Wall to celebrate Rosh HaShana, or the Jewish New Year.
