Jerusalem, three religions

The holy city

There is no doubt that Jerusalem is a unique city and it’s impossible to find another one like that. It is the sacred place for three big religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. And this can mean only one it’s a city of differences and unity at the same time. Pilgrims from all around the world are coming here to pray in the city where are roots of their faith. The city has its own melody composed form ring of Christian churches bells, Islamic calls for prayed and shofar (Jewish ram’s horn).

All of this is visible in no other place but in the Old City of Jerusalem. This part of the city is divided into four quarters: the Jewish Quarter, the Christian Quarter, the Muslim Quarter and the Armenian Quarter. The city is walled and there are several gates through which you can get inside but busiest is the Jaffa Gate next to the Tower of David Museum. Each of the four quarters has something different to offer and in each has its own atmosphere.

Starting with the Jewish Quarter where are houses of Haredi (Orthodox) Jewish families and Yeshivas (schools for Torah study). Here the residents of the quarter are running their everyday life and teenagers from all around the World are coming to study. The quarter is home to the Western Wall which is the last remaining wall of Jewish Temple and it’s the scariest place for the Jews. There is a custom of leaving a small paper with a prayer on the wall.

The significant contrast of the Jewish Quarter is the Muslim one. Here the streets are busier, it’s louder on the streets you can see vendors who are selling various products, not like in the other quarters where you can buy mainly religious or touristic products.The most important Muslim temple in the quarter is Dome of the Rock and here non-muslims are not allowed.
