Women and men approach the Western Wall separately in the men's section and the women's section. The custom of separation in this place is relatively young. It is known that as early as the end of the 19th century, separation did not exist. Some say that separation is intended to preserve the uniqueness of the place, its purity and to prevent unnecessary sexual attraction in a holy place. Some say that the separation is artificial and intended to impose halakhic coercion. One way or another, in recent years, there has been a section of Israel people. The unit allows a mixed approach of both sexes and is located south of the Western Wall next to the Davidson complex. The first and second temples were destroyed on Tisha B'Av. This is the day of mourning and fasting. It is customary to mourn near the Western Wall. Perhaps this tradition has led to the Western Wall being called the "Wall of Mourning" or "the wailing wall" in many European languages.
