Of course the first stop on my trip to Israel had to be my favorite place in the entire world, the Western Wall. It occurred to me that this might be a good opportunity to connect with Humans of Judaism followers. The thought was to go live at the Western Wall and anyone watching could comment with a name of someone they would like for me to pray for on their behalf. Unfortunately it was about 100 degrees and my phone shut off from overheating. I wasn’t going to drop this idea just because of one minor hiccup. When I returned to my hotel, I posted a photo of the Western Wall from my earlier visit and presented the same offer for the following day when I planned to return.
The response was incredible. There were comments, private messages and emails. People asking for prayers for themselves, for others, for our community and beyond. All of a sudden this small idea delivered great results. By the time I returned to the Western Wall, there were hundreds of messages and names. The experience is one I will never forget.
That’s me, praying for each and every one that asked. Thank you for trusting me with your personal prayers. I have never done anything like this before and the experience was unexpected. As I started to read each message outloud, tears started streaming down my face and even now as I am typing this note. It is humbling to say the least when hearing what each of us is praying for. I can promise you that I gave every ounce of myself and my soul when acting as a messenger to deliver these special messages. Thank you ♥️
