    photo by: David Ben Zur

    There are many Christian pigrimas coming to Jerusalem especially during special Christian holidays and events. Catholic, Orotodox, Protestants, Koptic and Ethiopian pilgrims are a very colorful and interesting thing to see. I took this photo of twom Ortodox monks from Greece meeting in Jerusalem after long time they have not see each other.

    Jewish cemetery

    It is believed that the dead will be ressurected here, in the valley of Jehoshaphat. For that reason the valley is covered with cemeteries..

    Tradition

    It's customary for a bride to say a prayer at the Western Wall after the wedding, in the picture, my new daughter-in-law is acknowledging this tradition.

    Bar Mitzvah

    When you visit the Western Wall (the Wailing Wall) you might run into a Bar Mitzvah. This is a ceremony commemorating the thirteenth birthday of a Jewish boy. It admits him to manhood.
