Western Wall caretakers cleaning the ancient stones.

Ahead of Pesach, Kotel employees clean out the Western Wall from all the notes, or “Kvitlach”, placed there by visiting worshipers.

There is a tradition that when visiting the Kotel, you can write a prayer or request and then place it in the wall.


Twice a year the notes are gathered up, and then buried in a Jewish cemetery.
