Morning at the Western Wall

People performing their morning prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Morning prayers at the Western Wall, Jerusalem.

“They will revere You at sun[rise], and before the moon, for all generations.” (Ps. 72:5). Morning prayers at the Western Wall, Jerusalem.

This photo is shot early morning during sunrise where a group of jews perform a prayer called Shacharit. Observant jews pray 3 times a day (women only pray once). The first prayer of the day is called Shacharit and must take place before 1/3 of the day is over. The other two prayers are Mincha in the afternoon (must take place before sunset) and Maariv in the evening/night after sunset.

As always you can click the photo to see a large version.

If it looks weird just click the photo again and you’ll be able to see a correctly displayed version, but the best solution is to change your browser to Opera, Firefox or Chrome.
