A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who
had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day,
for a long, long time.
So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and
there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site.
She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned
to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him
for an interview.
“Pardon me, sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your
“Morris Feinberg,” he replied.
“Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and
“For about 60 years.”
“60 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?”
“I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the
“I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop.”
“I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible
adults and to love their fellow man.”
“I pray that politicians tell us the truth and put the interests
of the people ahead of their own interests.”
“How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?”
“Like I’m talking to a brick wall.”
