Morning train prayer
I saw something beautiful this morning.
On the train from Beer Sheba to Tel Aviv, I happened to be in a car with a few religious people. One of them started putting on a tefillin for the morning prayer, the "Shacharit" and soon others followed him. On the way more and more people started joining them. Old and young, army soldiers, and people going to work, Ashkeazi ans Sefearadi, all joined in a common prayer.
I was touched, by seeing this moving improvised synagogue.
Afterwards one of the soldiers asked me if I was a journalist. LOL! He saw me photographing the people praying. I told him that I'm a blogger. Had to explain, what it is a blog afterwards thou.
From him I understood, that was pretty spontaneous, thou it happens occasionally on praying hours of the "Mincha", "Shacharith" and "Arvit".
