Joined by his wife, actress Jessice Biel, as well as his parents, Timberlake posted a photo of himself in prayer, with both hands touching the Kotel, to his Instagram account.

Timberlake, whose grandfather was a Baptist minister, is not widely known for his strong religious beliefs. But he was raised a devout Southern Baptist and sang in his church while growing up in Memphis. He also sports a tattoo of a Christian cross on his shoulder.

Timberlake is in Israel as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour. He will perform Wednesday night in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park.
