Morning of Bar Mitzvahs

Here we are on the ramp up to the Temple Mount, looking down on the Thursday morning Bar Mitzvahs at the Western Wall.  The women gather on the female side of the fence and peer over.

(The Western Wall is to the right of this picture, we're looking at it from the side).

At the top of the ramp, they store shields for the soldiers in the event that violence breaks out.

I was looking at the first pic, feeling the exitement in it. And then I felt the sobering slap of the shields. Don't know if you meant to do it that way, but it was very striking. Thank you...makes me think.
