10 thoughts on “A View From the Past”

  1. Very evocative. I travelled through Israel last November (I loved it), and this brings back strong memories of Jerusalem’s Old City. A place that stirs powerful feelings; there were times I felt strangely disturbed. But I also loved the New City – and Tel Aviv, for that matter.

    Thanks for posting these.

  2. I haven’t been there in a long time. I found the Jewish Quarter comfortable, but it’s new and Jewish. Walking along, say, the Via Dolorosa and then exiting the Old City through one of the gates felt like emerging from a dark theater at midday. I much prefer the modern part of Jerusalem.
