Finally, I Did It!

I've had lots of "firsts" recently, and one of them was praying in the Ezrat Nashim, Women's Section of the Synagogue in the Jerusalem Central Bus Station.  I was pleased to see another woman already deep in her prayers when I walked in.

The wall separating the men's a women's section is just short the ceiling, so if you're looking for a synagogue to say Kaddish, The Prayer for Mourners, you can hear the men.  Whoever is in charge has made an effort to make it "useful" and "comfortable," providing a table, chairs and the right books for prayers.

A man did open the door and looked surprised to see us.  Maybe it's because he wanted to put something in this box, for geniza.
