Thousands of Jewish Israelis converge upon the Western Wall Plaza as part of the ongoing Flag March.

A special divider has been erected in the general plaza in order to enable extended space for gender-segregated dancing in the largely religious crowd.

In addition to waving flags, the crowd dances to music from a live band, playing religious and nationalist music.
