Jerusalem from Giv’at Sha’ul to the Kotel.
Jerusalem is divided into scores of neighborhoods, each more or less distinct from the others, often differentiated, if not by architecture or median income, than by whether its residents are predominantly orthodox or secular. When reviewing the initial upload to this collection, I noticed that all the photos were taken within a stone’s throw of an imaginary straight line, two and one half miles long, connecting Giv’at Sha’ul and the Kotel (Western Wall).
Rechavia, where Marcia and I live, lies approximately at the midpoint of that line. One of the images, a shot of the entrance to Jason’s tomb, was taken a short distance from where we live, amazing (to me), because the rock cut tomb dates back to the Maccabean period, making it, in round numbers, about 2,000 years old. A 4th century monastery lies in “The Valley of the Cross” not far from us in the opposite direction, sponsored by Emperor Constantine’s mother; by comparison, relatively new.
