Placing a note in the cyber-space

Haaretz on a new service from WesternWallPrayers .com :


The latest marriage of technology and millennia-old traditions enables anyone with a special request, at least $80 to spare and Internet access to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem...

The basic package, for a minimum of $2 a day for the 40-day period, provides for inclusion in a group prayer at the wall. For $9 a day, a representative prays at the wall exclusively on your behalf. The $18 a day option includes the exclusive prayer as well as the recitation of all of Psalms and special prayers at an Old City synagogue. For an additional sum of $540, Burd can arrange for a 40-day course of prayers at the tomb of King David on Mt. Zion or at that of the Kabbalist Yitzhak Luria ("Arizal"), in Safed. Most clients take the basic package, Burd admitted, "because it's cheapest."...

For those of you who frequent the internet, for $2.50 a day I'll have someone pray for you in Beth Medrash Govoha, for an additional 3$ someone will go and learn in your honor at musser seder.
