Mount Zion

Favorite thing The Mount Zion is an elevation west of the Mount of Olives. Jewish scriptures apply the term "Mount Zion" to the Temple Mount or the City of David, both located on this elevation. For Jews the term "Zion" became a synecdoche referring to the entire city of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel.
Later the name became associated with a hill just outside the walls of the Old City, at the southern end of that elevation.
Important sites on Mount Zion are Dormition Abbey, King David's Tomb and the Room of the Last Supper.

Gehenna Valley of Hinnom

Favorite thing Gehenna, gehinnam, or gehinnom are terms derived from a geographical site in Jerusalem known as the Valley of Hinnom, one of the two principal valleys surrounding the Old City.
Gehenna is cited in the New Testament and in early Christian writing to represent the final place where the wicked will be punished or destroyed after resurrection.

The Omar Mosue

Favorite thing Another place that we've visited is Omar Al-Khattab Mosque on our way to see the Church Of Nativity. Jerusalem is one of the sacred and holy site for the world three major religions, so I do hope visitors to this place will try to show some respect…At least be quiet at the place of worship regardless whether you're freethinker or an agnostic even atheist !

Mea Shearim

Favorite thing The ultra-Orthodox neighbourhood, where fashion stopped about 150 years ago.

They have preserved the life and uses as their ancestors, who came from Eastern Europe.

Please remember to dress modestly; that means that women should not show her legs (long skirts), well actually women should not show anything, if you want to walk around, show as less as possible.

If you go on Shabbats (Saturdays), do not drive through, take photos or listen to a walkman or you may be in trouble.

I loved the little boys with the payot (sidecurls)

Street "Art"

Favorite thing Okay, so I am NOT sure if this can be termed ART, or if it is only "decoration".....it does seem to pretty up the end of the buildings though. We saw both of these near the market, wonder how many others are hidden away that we have not yet seen? Looks like it is time for a walking tour of new Jerusalem again.
The last photo in this series shows an impression of a hand in the sewer drain cover. This is claimed by some to be the lowest art in the world....

Jerusalem, the old city - outside the walls

Favorite thing Here you can see along one of the outer walls of the old city. Below it you have the new and modern road leading into "new" Jerusalem. You can get an idea of the size of the walls by the cars and people below.

View of the wall from Yemin Moshe

Favorite thing While visiting this beautiful area, we took this picture of the walls that go around Jerusalem.

This neighbour and its gardens are a great stop after all the walking over the old city, and have parking places.

Jerusalem city hall

Favorite thing This is the new city hall and its square, a very impersonal, but I am sure efficient place. Seems most official structures need to be unfriendly and drab....this one included. They also added a number of colorful ceramic or stone lions, I guess they thought it would liven up this dreary place of large stone pavers, but only makes the blandness stand out more. This is one place that you do NOT need to visit unless you have business there.

City of David - Hezekiah's Tunnel

Favorite thing If you're young or young in spirit [and you have gold in your heart and not betwen your teeth] - enrich your Jerusalem's experience with BIBLICAL HEZEKIAH's TUNNEL.

The City of David became a central and well-protected city at 19th century BCE. The first reason why this location was chosen is its proximity to GIHON SPRING. WATER, the source of life, was a crucial issue in this area, at the edge of the desert.

In the Canaanite period [18th century BCE] an underground tunnel was hewn serving as a protected passageway to the spring. The upper part of the water system was discovered by Charles Warren in 1867, and was cleared by archaeologists in 1995.

In the year 701 BCE Assyrian King Sanheriv rose up and laid siege to Jerusalem. As part of the preparation to defend Jerusalem from the siege, Hezekiah the king of Judea diverted the water from the Gihon to a pool betwwen the walls of the southern end of the city. [Chronicles 2, 32:30].
The diversion was accomplished by hewing a tunnel 533 meters in length. An inscription in ancient Hebrew writing, discovered in 1880, describes that the tunnel was hewn from two directions simultaneously. The joy of the diggers while meeting of the two groups - documented on that inscription

Fondest memory The walk through the tunnel takes about 40 minutes. The height of the water is above the knees [approx. 70 cm].
You can bring flashlight [or rent one in the entrance] and water shoes.
Candles are not allowed.
