TEHRAN, September 18 - Notes to God scribbled on paper were removed on September 17 from the cracks of Judaism's holiest site, the Western Wall, to make room for more ahead of the Jewish New Year.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Shmuel Rabinovitch, Rabbi of the Western Wall, led a team equipped with long wooden sticks and plastic bags to collect the thousands of paper notes hidden in between the cracks at the old city site.

Dozens of bags filled with notes, Rabinovitch said, will be buried in the Mount of Olives overlooking the Wailing Wall.

The tradition is carried out twice a year -- ahead of the Jewish New Year and ahead of Passover -- to make room for more notes.
