New e-mail service to…God

Bezeq announced Monday a new service: E-mails to God that will be placed in the Western Wall.

The new service expands the company’s existing fax service of notes to the Western Wall, which receives about 200 notes a week and more on holidays.

Since more people have access to the Internet than fax machines, Bezeq hopes the e-mail service will bring many more notes.

Tradition holds that God will grant the pleas placed between the massive stones of the Wall, which surrounded the Jewish Temple.

Bezeq currently takes the faxed notes, puts them in special envelopes and twice a week brings them to the Wall.

Most of the notes come from New York and Europe, but the company says it has received notes in Japanese and even one that came with a letter saying it had been smuggled out of Iran, which has no diplomatic ties with Israel.

While the company promises it does not read God’s mail, workers who put the notes in the wall say they recognize people who use the service on a regular basis, including some who send the same request every month.

Notes to Western Wall can be sent to: onemail@bezeq.com or faxed to 02 561 2222
