If you have the wrong address on the envelope, or in the "to:" space, your message won't get where intended.
As I write this, Rosh Hashannah, the two-day holiday ushering in the Jewish New Year, is just over 50 hours away, Israel time.
The State of Israel and many Jewish people devote their energies trying to get recognition and support from the wrong "bodies" or "beings."
As the month of Elul, when we concentrate our energies on "tshuva," repentance, comes to a close, we must focus our worship, our energies in the right direction. And the kotel isn't it either. It's just a remnant of the outer wall of the compound. It is not a wall of the Holy Temple.
Have a truly wonderful year.
