Views of Jerusalem – Morning to Nightfall

Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity -Yehuda Amichai, Israeli poet
ירושלים היא עיר נמל על חופו של נצח יהודה עמיחי, משורר ישראלי

This week’s post is all Jerusalem, as seen from various vantage points around the city, from morning to nightfall.
ההודעה של השבוע היא כל ירושלים, כפי שנראה מנקודות תצפית שונות ברחבי העיר, מהבוקר ועד רדת החשכה.

The Damascus Gate

“…the earthly Jerusalem will one day fade away into the Heavenly Jerusalem.”

“… ירושלים של מטה תהיה יום אחד נמוגות לתוך ירושלים של מעלה”.

Cemeteries rest upon the Mount of Olives

The Psalmist gave us these words, “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.”

התהילים נתנו לנו את המילים האלה: “התפללו לשלום בירושלים. מי ייתן וכל מי שאוהב את העיר הזאת ישגשגו”.

Looking into Jerusalem from the city walls on the Rampart Walk

Looking towards the Mount of Olives from the ramparts

Looking along the city walls towards the old city

A waxing moon and Venus rise above the city walls

  1. Russ, we always ALWAYS love seeing all your photographs and being able to go with your “around the world.” God’s world is so beautiful, glad we get to experience a little of what you see.

  2. I just returned to America after being in Israel for the last two months. These photos helped me remember why I love Israel so much! Thank you for also including the beautiful quotes, especially with the accompanying Hebrew.
