The Western Wall was emptied of layers of notes from its cracks and crevices for the New Year.

The notes were removed Monday morning under the supervision of the rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, who ensured they will remain confidential. They will be buried.

At the time of the removal, the rabbi said a prayer asking God to fulfill the requests contained in the notes.

The notes are removed from the wall twice a year, before Rosh Hashanah and Passover.
