Update: Western Wall gets spring cleaning



With masses of travelers expected to arrive in Israel for the upcoming Passover and Easter holidays, municipal authorities at the Western Wall have begun cleaning the holy site by removing the thousands of notes containing wishes and prayers placed in its cracks by visitors, including President Obama, over the past year. The notes are removed annually by wooden sticks dipped in the mikveh or ritual bath, and buried at the Mount of Olives Cemetery in Jerusalem to make room for an upcoming year of written prayers submitted by visitors to the Wall.  This webcam is focused on the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
