Thread: Live Kotel Cam thread *merged*

  1. #1

    Default Live Kotel Cam thread *merged*

    I have never heard someone speaking at the Kotel before. I know there is a loud speaker or microphone because you can hear singing and talking in the background. Today there is someone making a speech and there is a lot of people there. Time is 4:45 central time. 12:45 AM in Jerusalem. It must be in Hebrew because I do not understand it.

    Cool, now if only I could understand hebrew

    Maybe its a prayer rally...perhaps a precursor for an Isreali attack...who's to say? Is there a special Jewish holiday going on?

    No shofars at this time. The last hour or so, it has been a guy over the loud speaker leading the crowd in song & chants.

    It's a ceremony - "Slichot assembly with Rabbi Grossman" according the the flashing news headlines on the right side of the camera. Maybe it's to do with Rosh Hashana celebrations?

    Quite the crowd, isn't it!

    I sure wish I knew what that guy was shouting over the loud speakers. My guess is
    "Let's rebuild the Temple"!

    I found a live site that has constant sound - shofars, speakers, people shouting, everything. My apologies if y'all have already seen this one.

    Yes, I wish we had an interpreter, I'd love to know what's being said and shouted back!

    Thanks for the link Carrie, going to have a look

    Can anyone tell me how many hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time that Jerusalem is? I would like to know what time it is there while we are viewing the cam. The readout on the video said 23 Sept 22:55, but that can't be right, that would mean exactly 24 hours ahead, and that can't be right. That is the first time I was able to hear all the sounds! Wow, it is incredible, we can sit here in America and have a live window on the Holy City like that! Listen to God's people singing! I love it.

    well I'm watching it now, and it's early morning there.... looks to be about 6am there but my phone tells me its 5am in Jerusalem right now. Still a pretty good crowd there now.

    1 guy with a fire hose washing down the area. Couldn't tell from where the hose was coming from as it was out of camera range. He was tugging on it pretty good though. I think there was a few passersby that got their pant legs wet though
