C. Rubens 2006. Holy Places in Eretz Yisroel
Let’s take a trip to Eretz Yisroel
This is your pilot speaking!
Have you fastened your seatbelts?
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
Sit back comfortably
and enjoy the flight
That was an easy flight! The first place I always go to is the Kosel Hamaravi, the Western Wall in Yerushalayim. It is the last remaining wall of the Beis Hamikdosh. The Sages prophesied that after the Temple's destruction, the Divine Presence will never leave the Western Wall. For this reason, the Wall will never be destroyed.
Why is the wall holy? The Temple Mount is also called Mount Moriah. This is the spot where Avrohom bound Yitzchok, and where Yaakov dreamt of the ladder reaching to heaven.
Got a problem?
The Kosel has no street number and no postal code, but it receives more letters than anyone in the world.
Letters arrive from every country where Jews are living.
Hashem sees into our hearts and answers all our Tefillos.
I am now going to write my own letter to Hashem….
Do all the letters really find a place in the cracks of the Kosel?
However, the Kosel cannot hold an infinite number of letters. Space has to be cleared for the new arrivals that come in daily.
Out of respect for the messages and the people who wrote them, they collect all the notes and bury them on Har Hazeisim.
Which bus shall we take? We must take this one , as it has thick protective windows and on the front there is a large sign that says “KEVER ROCHEL.”
Have we arrived already?
Rochel is crying for her children…
Hashem specifically buried Rochel Imeinu between Efrat and Beis Lechem, so that when the Jews were sent off into Galus, on the way they could daven by Kever Rochel.
Send your own letter to Rochel Imeinu…
Write your heart’s desire on a piece of paper and mail it to:
Mosdos Kever Rochel
Somebody will personally deliver the letter to Kever Rochel for you!
