Message at the Kotel

undefined

Rabbi Chaim Tabasky

15 Sivan 5765
Question
I would like to know if when we place a message in the Kotel, is this from Halacha or just a custom? Also if it’s Halacha where is the source that tells us to do so, if it’s just a custom, when did it originate?
Answer
It is a custom, apparently hundreds of years old.
