Munera announced today a partnership with Chabad.org to make the iPhone application Send a Prayer – Western Wall widely available.
The application is expected to be extensively used in the run up to Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to fill the Western Wall with personal prayers.
The price of the application has been reduced to $0.99 in honor of this campaign and is being announced throughout Chabad.org’s network.
Users can compose prayers on their iPhone or iPod touch. Within 48 hours, the prayers will be printed out in Jerusalem and placed between the stones of the Western Wall.
In addition, in keeping with the age-old Jewish practice to pray at the resting places of the righteous before Rosh Hashanah, users will now also be able to send their prayer to be placed at the Ohel – resting place of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.
The application will be available in English, French and Spanish.
“We are very excited about the partnership. The reach of Chabad.org in Jewish communities worldwide is just what we were hoping to find,” said Na’ama Moran, Founder of Munera.
“Rosh Hashanah is the perfect opportunity to reach out and use our mobile technology to fill the Western Wall with prayers for peace.”
“When technology is utilized to span geographic space and connect people, we are then realizing the ultimate purpose of the energy latent in Creation,” noted Rabbi Meir Simcha Kogan, Managing Director of Chabad.org.
“By connecting people with holy sites half a world away, this beautiful Munera app helps us all live on a higher, holier plane.”
The app is available in the App Store – HERE
