A powerful message emanates from the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people.
For the first time in recent history, the Western Wall plaza is practically empty.
Last year, 12 million visitors from around the world came to the holy site, including over 750,000 Taglit-Birthright Israel participants.
Birthright educator Shabi Spero, standing at the empty Kotel plaza, explains the important message.
HELP ISRAELIS BATTLE CORONA!
Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.
Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!
United with Israel extends a special note of appreciation to the Genesis Prize for their generous support.
