Letters to God delivered to Western Wall

JERUSALEM (JTA) – Hundreds of letters addressed to God, “Our Heavenly Father” and other monikers, were delivered to the Western Wall on Sept. 19.

Israel Post Director General Danny Goldstein handed the letters over to the rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz. The letters will be placed in the cracks of the stones of the Wall.

The letters, which usually arrive without a return address, are sent to the Israel Post Lost and Found Department. They are delivered before the Jewish High Holidays.

Written in many languages, the letters have come from countries around the world, including Russia, China, France, Nigeria, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States.
