Do I have to be at the Kotel (Western Wall) or in Jerusalem in order to be close to G – d?
Of course, the connection of G – d is much stronger when you are praying at the Kotel but Judaism follows the concept that G – d is everywhere. He is in your garage as well as at your workplace.
The Torah doesn’t limit holiness to Heaven. It was G – d who created the entire universe and thus He can be found anywhere. Even in the darkest place on Earth. You just have to look for Him and find Him.
