@TheKotel Prayers to Jerusalem
by: Quasi Labs • 79
Send your prayers to the Western-Wall in Jerusalem (The Kotel) from your phone!
Using the speech-to-text feature your phone has, you can actually say your prayer out loud and have it sent simultaneously and automatically to the Western-Wall!
As the last remnant of the Second Temple, the Western-Wall in Jerusalem (also known as The Kotel) is believed to have a greater Divine presence than anywhere else on earth. For hundreds of years, people have placed notes with their prayers in the Wall’s crevices, believing that it serves as a direct channel to the Almighty.
Tweet Your Prayers @TheKotel was born from the belief that the Western-Wall should be easily accessible to all people – from all over the world – and for free. As the name suggests, this service was originally launched on Twitter, where it was quickly adopted by many and given much attention around the world.
Offering this service on Twitter showed us the great impact that sending prayers to Jerusalem can have. We learned that many lives were touched, even changed, through the simple act of sending a prayer to the Western-Wall. It soon became clear that this service should be accessible beyond Twitter, so mobile apps for iPhone and Android are now available. Our mission is to facilitate prayer, because we realize that the more people we reach, the more impact we have, and the more lives are touched. It’s as simple as that!
