Erev Tisha be’Av: Walking around the Old City Walls


Also this Tisha be’Av, the traditional Walk around the Old City Walls will be taking place. Organized by Nadja Matar and her Women in Green.
I have been participating in this even on a regular basis for many years. It is the only time when I can walk through East Jerusalem. Passing Damascus Gate, Lion’s Gate, etc. I wouldn’t really go there during the rest of the year, as it is too dangerous.
Jews participating in this event on Tisha be’Av Eve will be protected by army and police. After passing Lion’s Gate we walk up to the Kotel (Western Wall) where thousands of Jews read Kinot throughout the entire night.
