There is a much publicised practice of placing slips of paper containing written prayers into the crevices of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The Western Wall is an important Jewish religious site located in the Old City of Jerusalem. It dates from the end of the Second Temple period, being constructed around 19 BCE by Herod the Great. The remaining wall is not part of the actual Temple but part of the retaining wall to the Temple Mount where the Temple was found.
More than a million notes are placed each year. The notes are collected twice a year and buried on the Mount of Olives.
So when I visited the Wall last week I decided that 43 years of despair for Maple Leaf fans required divine intervention. I left the note above in the Wall.
Let's hope it works.
