Friday night in Jerusalem

As I typed this I was sitting on a cobbled floor in Jerusalem outside the wailing wall, it was yesterday which was Friday night……

It is moments before the bringing in of the sabbath (this is meant to be the most spiritual time) the air is electric, yet at the same time there is a serene calmness, and while I am not Jewish or even really religious to witness a moment like this is once in a lifetime.

The crowds of people, the joy in the air, the intensity is hard to explain yet it is something I had to stop for a moment to try to capture my feelings into words.

Different countries, cultures, beliefs all together for one moment in time. No judgement (apparent anyway) just a feeling a sense of being a part of something bigger than yourself.

One night, one moment in one holiday.
One Friday night, different from all the others. Friday night in Jerusalem a once in a lifetime experience.
