What do you know… a large stone fell off the Western Wall. Almost hit a Jewish woman who was standing there praying. Here, see for yourself.
What does one usually do when a large stone breaks apart from a big wall? Well, if it’s Berlin Wall – you do your best to keep it as a souvenir. Otherwise, you know…
Not if it’s the Western Wall!
Apparently, according to Jewish religious laws, these stones should be treated differently. Actually, as this text as being written, the most brilliant minds of Jewish Orthodoxy are discussing what to do in this complex situation. Luckily they already agreed for male construction workers to access a location dedicated to the new “egalitarian prayer platform” – Hooray
So their expected solution will probably be to bury the precious stone, not to display it in some museum as one might think. Happy burial!
