AJL Notable Book for Younger Readers:
When a young brother and sister walk through the Old City of Yerushalayim on their way to the Kosel, parents will want their young children to “walk” along!
In simple, poetic language, The Waiting Wall describes the beauty of the Kosel in every detail… the ancient stones, the plants and birds that find shelter there… and the many people who sway in tefillah, “like trees in the wind.”
Why do some people have tears in their eyes? Why are there little papers stuffed into the cracks between the stones? What used to be here many years ago?
The Waiting Wall is a book to be experienced, not just read. It is a special journey to one of the most special places on earth.
