In Jewish tradition, Sukkot is known as one of the pilgrimage festivals, one of the three times each year when people from around the Holy Land would head to Jerusalem to worship and celebrate at the ancient Temples.
According to legend, a destitute man came to a rabbinic sage in Jerusalem in the middle of the 18th century, complaining of his economic plight. The rabbi’s advice: He wrote an amulet on parchment and instructed the man to place it between the stones of what was then called the Wailing Wall.
