Boys from Golani Brigade at the Kotel on Tish B'Av

Met up with Dan Sieradski and photographer Kitra Cahana last night. We headed down to the Kotel to read Eicah and snap some pics. Pictured above is a group of Golani soldiers fasting and lamenting at the Kotel. You can see more pictures by clicking on the flickr tag below. I hope those of you who are fasting are having a meaningful fast.
