Only in Israel, Prayers in the Shuq

The other day, while walking in Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda Market, I wasn't quite sure what I heard. It ended up being the Mincha (afternoon) prayer nice and loud on a loud speaker. The small synagogue was overflowing.

As I walked by I noticed men following and answering "Amen" in the right spots as they worked nearby. Some weren't even wearing kippot or head-coverings.

Only in Israel...
