If Prayers Don't Work, Try Mail

God's Mail Delivered to Jerusalem's Wailing Wall

JERUSALEM - Israel's postal service this week delivered 1,000 letters addressed to God, his prophets and the messiah, to their presumed address: the Wailing Wall in Old Jerusalem, the holiest Jewish relic in the world.

Mailed since the beginning of the year, the bundles of letters were delivered to the Wailing Wall by postal director Yossi Sheli, where a rabbi placed the envelopes between the crevices of the ancient stones.

In December 2003, an Israeli rights group accused the post office of usurping people's privacy for publishing letters written to God on its website.

"I am in awe in front of you and you know how much I love you. Will you help me to stop bickering and become a good little girl?" ran one such letter.
