Removal of thousands of notes from the Western Wall

Western Wall workers remove thousands of handwritten notes placed between the ancient stones of the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest site in the Old City of Jerusalem. The operation is carried out twice each year: before the Passover festival which begins next week and at the Jewish New Year in the fall.
