From the news this week one would think that all of Jerusalem is divided; religious or secular, right or left, east or west. However, on many Jerusalem streets people do come together and not just in traffic accidents.
Outside the walls of the Old City…thousands of people gather and pass peacefully day after day.
At the Kotel, the Western Wall on Monday or Thursday and certain holidays when 13 year old boys are celebrating their Bar Mitzvahs, invited guests and strangers from all over the world can be found enjoying the celebrations.
Shopping in the Machane Yehuda Market, shuk has for years been a important part of life in Jerusalem.
Ben Yehuda Street
King George and Strauss Streets
in the center of town
and its shops are also busy.
But the modern malls are real competition.
Bus loads of tourists come,
Jews, left, right and center attend
one thing everyone
is still a mess…….
