Kosel Preparations Ahead of the New Year

Kosel Rav Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz is busy preparing the Kosel for Rosh Hashanah and the Tishrei Yomim Tovim. Included in his many tasks is the responsibility to clean out kvitlach from the Kosel stones, a job that demands supervision from engineering staff to ensure nothing compromises the integrity of the ancient stones. After removing the kvitlach from the Kosel, they are placed in large bags and taken for kvura on Har HaZeisim YWN
