We found ourselves in the Old City on a Friday evening. Without realizing it, we were about to witness an ancient and beautiful tradition – the bringing in of Shabbat. As a Christian many Jewish traditions are foggy to me. But after witnessing this paradoxical event – full of reverence, fun, joy, community and solitude for some – I was blown away. Such a reverence for the Wall, and the Sabbath – we stayed all evening.
