$500 Million Left at Jerusalem’s Western Wall

At Jerusalem’s Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, an unknown worshiper has left hundreds of millions of dollars worth of checks.

FOX News Radio’s Emily Wither has details from Jerusalem:

Audio clip:

Here in Jerusalem, deep in the Old City, it’s common for worshipers to leave notes at the Western Wall…but not bank notes, and not half a billion dollars worth!  In the cracks of the walls, letters to God are scrunched up on tiny bits of paper, but one worshiper found an envelope with 507 checks in it, each worth around a million dollars.

They’re not addressed to anyone and it’s doubtful they’ll be cashed.  Police here say they’re mostly from Nigeria, but some are from the U.S., Europe and Asia.  A Rabbi who oversees the Western Wall says he’s found checks before, but they’ve all bounced.
