Duly noted: a little something to tell God

For those here and abroad who couldn't bear the drive and crowding at the Western Wall plaza for the mass priestly blessings during the holiday, Ynet News offers a solution:

A recent innovation at Mini Israel allows visitors to leave notes in the cracks of its miniature Western Wall. The notes will be transferred to the real Western Wall in Jerusalem once a week.

Mini Israel CEO Haim Rogatka said that since the opening of the park, hundreds of thousands of visitors had stood in awe before the miniature Western Wall each year.

“It was as if they were standing before the true Western Wall in Jerusalem, the capital city,” Rogatka said.
