Jerusalem is breatakingly beautiful. This panorama is taken from the top of the Phasael Tower at the Citadel -- just inside the Jaffa Gate. Borrowing from the Talmud, Garth Hewitt's song includes this Chorus:
"Ten measures of beauty God gave to the world, nine to Jerusalem, one to the rest.
Ten measures of sorrow God gave to the world, nine to Jerusalem, one to the rest.
So pray for the peace, pray for the peace, pray for the peace of Jerusalem."
This city is precious and sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. May God grant us the ability to share its beauty and experience His peace.
