Tens of thousands of people gathered at the Kosel for the last night of slichos before Yom Kippur to beseach Hakadosh Brachu Hu by the shaarei shamayim. The chief Rabbis of Israel, Rabbi Yonah Metzger and Rav Shlomo Amar led the tefilos – which drew such a crowd that not only was the whole Jewish Quarter closed to vehicles but at many places it was shut off to pedestrian traffic as well.
