A Prayer from a Wheelchair at the Kotel


Police made an exception to allow a man to pray at the Western Wall when he explained his illness may not allow him another chance. Handicapped accessibility at the Western Wall (Kotel) usually must be made in advance, but the exception was made for the patient, David Schneer, who made the sudden request to Magen David Adom medics who were transferring him from a Jerusalem hospital to his home in the metropolitan Tel Aviv area.
