Reply: It is commercialized Judaism reaching an all-time-low.

I had the opportunity to meet with a "mekubal" in Isarael...(someone Rabbi Abadi approves of)...
I asked him if there was any legitimacy to going to the Kotel for 40 days.....
He actually laughed..said...(You think G-d can't hear you from your living room? Try praying for the same thing for 40 days from your house...
Reply:  Certainly a point!
However most of us fail to realize the simple truth. God does not want our prayers. His main request is for us to do the right thing (613 Mitzvot +). Once that is done, he'd like to hear us pray.
