'Tweet' Your Prayers to Jerusalem's Wailing Wall

Ad Feedback

You can now use the social networking website Twitter to send your prayers to the Wailing Wall located in Jerusalem, Israel.

The Western Wall now has its own Twitter address to handle electronic petitions. Over the centuries, people have placed their handwritten petitions between the wall's ancient stones. In recent years, the faithful could fax or e-mail their prayers.

People all over the world can tweet their prayers, have them printed and placed in the wall.

Alon Nil, a 25-year-old economist said he started the Wall's Twitter page three weeks ago and has already received hundreds of electronic prayers.

"It all started a while after the riots in Iran, and I realized the potential of Twitter," Nil said. "There are an infinite number of uses for Twitter, and I thought 'What can I do that is new and creative and might benefit the people of Israel?' "

Nil said he hopes his small operation will help bring people closer together.
