Old Yishuv, Women Praying at the Western Wall

Old Yishuv, Women Praying at the Western Wall

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.
