God Receives His Mail

21 September 2016

Israel Post Director General Danny Goldstein, on Monday, 19 September 2016, ahead of the upcoming Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays, at the Western Wall, met with Western Wall and Holy Sites Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, and delivered to him a consignment of letters addressed to God, which will be placed between the stones of the wall. The letters were posted from Israel as well as from countries such as Russia, China, France, Nigeria, Spain, the Netherlands, the US, the UK and many others.

Hundreds of letters are mailed to Israel annually addressed to – inter alia – "God," "Jesus," "Our Dear Father in Heaven" and "the Western Wall." These letters, most of which lack a return address, are sent to the Israel Post Lost and Found Dept., which then sends them, once every few months, to be placed among the stones of the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.
