Religious Jews Sing And Dance At The Wailing Wall

See video

I went on a pilgrimmage (of sorts) to Israel in 2010, covering cities such as Nazareth, Haifa, Bethlehem and of course, Jerusalem. 

So there I was, standing at the Wailing Wall, the holiest site in Judaism.

One of the last remnants of the Second Temple built by King Herod and razed by the Romans, it is a site of almost constant prayer and rituals. It was a blazing hot day, and I was taking in the sights and sounds of it all, surrounded by hundreds of people.

All of a sudden, a group of Orthodox Jews broke into song and dance.

I have no idea what it was about, and I certainly couldn't understand what they were singing. But I had a vague notion that it was religious in nature, and it was a lively, happy scene that made everyone smile.
