Dear Rabbi,

From the KotelKam, you see over to the left on top of some buildings six large stars on pedastals. I would love to know what they are, and what they are for?


Dear Jennine Wessell,

What youre seeing is a large monument to the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust. There are six large tubes with flames inside each tube, and six Stars of David, one star on top of each tube. The five Hebrew letters of the word "yizkor" "G-d will remember" are written there, one letter between each tube.

The kotelkam is a 24-hour camera at Jerusalems Western Wall.
