What a sad picture.
OK, I’ll bite. What are the 1000 words that this picture is supposed to explain? In fact, I received the picture from a friend, and he entitled it “Mincha and Mechitza”. So, what is going on in the picture?
WADR, I disagree with Sarah Elias. Here we see Jews who could perhaps become one of the most divisive moments in Jewish history since the current exile began. Instead of letting their political and tactical opposition turn into hatred, we see them remembering the brotherhood of the Jewish People and the centrality of our common Father.
Sad?! It’s so incredibly beautiful!
Mi K’Amcha Yisroel !!!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but those aren’t protesters.
That’s a group of bochurim from Ohr Somayachs’s “Center” program on a trip.
[postdoc] that would also explain that the soldiers are *inside* the fence
(looks like inside a military base to me) and the the “protesters” look nothing like.
see anybody wearing orange????
To check the authenticity follow the link below. Also, there IS an orange ribbon right in the middle of the protesters.

I agree with Micha. This image is both heartbreaking and heartwarming.
