What happens to the notes?
They are blessed, placed in bags, and then buried on the Mount of Olives.
A short video well worth your time . . .
Ir David (The City of David) has published an excellent short video in response to the continuing UNESCO canard that Jerusalem is a Muslim City.

Should Israel Commemorate Turkish Airmen?
The white slab near the base of the monument:
Two days ago, a ceremony was held in the Jordan Valley commemorating the memory of a Turkish pilot and his navigator who were killed when their plane crashed there in bad weather in February 1914. The ceremony took place at near Kibbutz Haon where a monument to the pilots was built.
Eventually the two Turks were buried in Damascus at the Great Mosque at the foot of Saladin’s mausoleum. They were hailed as heroes in Turkey where a city in southwestern Turkey was renamed with the name of the pilot and poems, stamps, and even a movie regale the airmen’s exploits.
Attending the ceremony yesterday were Kamal Okam, Turkey’s Ambassador to Israel, and a representative of Turkey’s military attache—both of whom spend most of their time trashing Israel and talking about a Muslim takeover of Jerusalem.
Your humble servant cannot understand why this celebration takes place. Granted the pilots were brave to fly their wood and fabric plane on a 13-leg journey of almost 1700 miles; however, theirs was a journey to restore the glory of the Muslim Ottoman Empire.
Which is precisely what radical Islamist Turkish PM Taycip Erdogan is attempting to do today. And precisely why the Turks were at Kibbutz Haon two days ago.
Should Israel promote this commemoration?
I leave it for you, dear reader, to decide.
