The Fellowship's Ami Farkas writes about a recent visit to the holiest spot in Judaism, where Jews and Christians are forbidden from praying.

Passover is less than a week away. To prepare for this holy season, Jews clean their homes from top to bottom, ensuring all traces of leaven bread – including the crumbs – have been washed away.
