CAPTION ONLY: SMALL SUPPLICANT AT WESTERN WALL

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish boy wears his father's hat as he tries reading from a prayer book during the Priestly Blessing at the Western Wall during the Sukkot holiday. The blessing is performed by the descendants of the temple priests of ancient times. Sukkot marks the harvest and commemorates the desert wanderings of the Hebrews during the Exodus.
