We at the Jerusalem Insider's Guide would like to wish our readers a very happy, fruitful, healthy and blessed new year.

At this time of year, when we join in prayer for the welfare of the world, our country and each other, why not place your prayer in the Wall in Jerusalem, no matter where you live.

Use the confidential form on our site and we'll place your prayer in the Western Wall in Jerusalem for you.

The service is free. Since Jewish tradition teaches our prayers are more readily accepted when accompanied by acts of charity, we also offer you the opportunity to make a donation to our fund for handicapped children in Jerusalem.

May your prayers always be answered for the good.

We hope to see you soon in our favorite city. May you have a wonderful holiday!
