Kosel Undergoes Kvitlach Cleaning Ahead of Rosh Hashanah


photos-kosel-undergoes-cleaning-for-pesach-6Armed with wooden poles, Kosel employees today removed millions of kvitlach – handwritten notes, faxes and email printouts – from between the ancient stones. The Western Wall HeritageFoundation, which gives the Kosel such a face-lift twice a year – before Rosh Hashanah and before Pesach oversaw the removal of the growing influx of kvitlach.

The laborers – working under the supervision of Kosel rov Rav Shmuel Rabinovich – take care to not read their content. The kvitlach are then taken to Har Hazeisim for burial.
