Wailing wall

Wailing wall


Orthodox Jews at the Western or 'wailing' wall. This wall is a supporting wall of the Haram ash-Sharif and is technically in East Jerusalem. However one entrance is situated at the dividing line between the Jewish and Muslim quarters of the Old City and is off-limits to most Palestinians just as the Haram ash-Sharif is off-limits to most Israelis.
