Pictures! Prayer Gathering At Kotel 2nd of 3

Actually the first is going to the Kotel Katan, but somehow didn't show in the first batch.

This includes shopping for orange, which seems to have gotten a "hetter," special permission from the rabbis, since during the three weeks, especially the nine days of mourning of the destruction of the Holy Temples, it's forbidden. But this year the orange tables have been mobbed, and people put on their orange tee shirts, even though they are new.

The last picture starts giving an idea of how many people were trying to get to the Kotel for the massive prayer assembly. Later on worshippers couldn't even get into the Old City. These are stairs going down from the Jewish Quarter into the Kotel Plaza.
