Photographer's Note

The Western Wall is also known as The Wailing Wall which is a translation of the Arabic el-Mabka, (place of Weeping) the traditional Arabic term for the wall. The description came about because of the Jewish practice of coming to the site to mourn and weep over the destruction of the Temple
