Jerusalem in Photos

The Old City
Yerushalayim in Hebrew, Al-Quds in Arabic


The Psalmist's oath: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning” (Psalm 137:5).

Jerusalem, resting in the Judean Hills, was established 3000 years ago by King David as the capital of the Jewish nation. Jerusalem is the modern capital of the State of Israel, but not internationally recognized.

Jews have been living in Jerusalem continuously for nearly two millennia. They have constituted the largest single group of inhabitants there since the 1840's.

The Old City is divided into quarters, named after the four communities that inhabited it during the Middle Ages: Arab, Jewish, Christian and Armenian.

No wonder Jerusalem has such a tremendous impact, both locally and internationally. To Jews, Jerusalem has always been "The Holy City". The Wailing Wall at the foot of Temple Mount is all that remains of Jerusalem’s second temple and is Judaism’s most important place of prayer.

For Christians, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is thought to contain the tomb where Jesus was laid to rest after the Crucifixion, having carried the cross through the city along the Via Dolorosa.

The Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount is Islam’s third most important religious site (after Mecca and Medina), and it is from here that Muhammad is believed to have ascended to heaven.
