Five Prayers

Your Shot photographer Lior Sperandeo caught this moment of five men praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. "In Jewish numerology, the number five is especially unique," he explains. "There are five books of Moses and five divisions to the Psalms. Five is the number of protection." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
