Under the auspices of The Western Wall Heritage Foundation, daily prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem continue even during the corona pandemic crisis.

Every day, three prayer services take place with a minyan (quorum) in keeping with government regulations. The Western Wall Heritage Foundation has taken upon itself to make it possible for any Jew anywhere in the world to connect from home with prayers at the Western Wall via live broadcast.

The prayers are broadcast three times a day on the Western Wall website, YouTubeFacebook and on a designated phone line +972-2-3011133.

Furthermore, for those who need to recite the mourner’s kaddish prayer for a family member, but cannot do so due to the situation, the names of the deceased can be sent through the Western Wall website to the following address: https://bit.ly/3acBBj0 or by sending a WhatsApp message to: 972-52-8618365.

To date, kaddish has been recited at the minyan at the Western Wall for almost 2,000 names that have been sent.
