Coming together

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

is alive again.

King George and Strauss Streets

in the center of town

 and its shops are also busy.







 But the modern malls are real competition.









Many buses cross the Jerusalem streets,  often riders come together  like sardines.









The Great Synagogue attracts many visitors.

Bus loads of tourists come, 

Jews, left, right and center  attend

the services.



                                                            And finally,

                                                            one thing everyone

                                                            agrees on…

                                                            Yaffo Street 

                                                             is still a mess…….
