I was on a mission, an adventure, if you will. Because I was so interested in theology and the world's religions, I was may ultimate goal to be immersed in the major 5 religions of the world; Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Being religious myself, it was also interesting to see where my religion originated and where it diffused. However, I do not think I was prepared for the huge journey I was about to undertake.
12/25/16- Still in Jerusalem, I visited the sacred site of the Jewish religion next. Here, I saw the Wailing/Western wall. This is a sacred site to the Jews because it is a remaining part of the old Temple Mount, where many holy temples stood.
The holiness of the old temples is why this wall is used to pray upon.
I also visited the Jerusalem Great Synagogue, which looked like a modern recreation of old Synagogues and newer modern designs.
