Old Yishuv 1 - still image [media]

The lifestyle of the women in the Holy Land largely embodied their religious ideals. Not content merely to live in the Land, they spent their time visiting the holy places a kind of pilgrimage within pilgrimage. They would gather regularly for prayer at holy sites, most prominently the Western Wall (as shown in this period photograph) and Rachel's tomb.
