I walk away from the Kotel with the same two thoughts. When I get to the top of the steps that lead into the Old City, I look back and marvel, “How holy is this place.” Then I look up, over the Kotel and wonder, “How long will it be that we have to daven (pray) down here?”
Here we are, as close as we can come (for now) to the holiest place in the world. There is both great appreciation and great yearning. We see the holiness of the Kotel, and we are very thankful. But we also look up at the vast holiness of the Temple Mount and thirst for more.
