First View of Jerusalem

    Posted by AMHSI Student on 12.15.19


This picture is of the Old City of Jerusalem built into what it is during the times of Kings David & Solomon. We learned about the history of modern Israel and the song Yerushalayim Shel Zahav. We discussed the construction of the city by King David and its relevance now after being disputed land throughout certain eras. This tiyul resonated with me because I felt like I was looking out onto the history of every Jew that has come before me. I understood the importance that Israel has to me and so many other people and the history it holds. Getting to see Jerusalem for the first time was really impactful for me. - Caroline
