This is a photograph of the young French girl, for whom Ahoova performed a little Bat Mitzvah ceremony, and her mother. This photograph was taken at the Western Wall, which is where the ceremony was performed. Ahoova, Imri's mother was gracious to allow me to accompany her on this pilgrimage to one of the most holy sites in Jewish existence. While at the wall, I was approached by several Chasidim who wanted to bless me, and ask for money in return. The Chasidim are a burden to the Israeli economy. They spent their entire day praying, and otherwise being useless, and really begging for money. It's embarrassing, not to mention their fanatical opinions and views are the base vote for the conservative party here, much like the Christian Right in the US.
