The plaza in front of Jerusalem's Western Wall functions as an outdoor synagogue. Thursday is an especially popular day for bar mitzvah celebrations. A smaller section of the plaza is also reserved for women, and there you can find bat mitzvahs going on. These ceremonies mark the 'coming of age' of a Jewish boy at age 13, or a Jewish girl at age 12.
