Western Wall cleaned for Passover

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Western Wall was cleared of notes in advance of Passover.

Workers used sticks Sunday to remove the hundreds of thousands of prayers and requests written on slips of paper that worshippers stuff into the cracks between the wall’s stones.

The papers will be buried out of respect for their contents.

The Western Wall also is cleared of the notes prior to Rosh Hashanah.
