      Kotel Cleanup Underway

      Workers at the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem have begun their semi-annual removal of notes placed between the wall's stones by worshippers. The removal precedes Rosh Hashannah, the Jewish New Year, which begins next Sunday evening, and the Passover holiday in the spring.

      The notes will be buried in the ground without being read.
