My Jerusalem Journey

I can still remember that feeling when, as an eleven year old girl, I came to Jerusalem for the first time with my parents and brother.
I can recall and visualise the overwhelming feeling of awe and trepidation as I touched the stones of the Kotel, and the multi sensory physical, emotional and spiritual connection that I immediately felt with the magic of the ancient, the Divine and the people.Thus began my calling, my journey and my love affair with Jerusalem; which I celebrate every blessed day of my life.

I love Jerusalem because

Talking to someone I meet on the street and realising that there is no such word as “stranger” here- because we are all connected by something?
I never feel like I am a stranger, nor that anyone whom I meet- Yerushalmi or visitor- is a stranger. Jerusalem is physically and spiritually unique in time and space, and the people who are here feel it.

Every day I appreciate our Divine inheritance more, and I marvel at the renewal and the beautification of this multi-dimensional City.

My 100%Jerusalem moment

There are too many moments from which to select one.
Sunset over the desert skyline?
Dancing in the streets on Yom Yerushalyim ?
That Friday afternoon feeling when the streets go quiet as people prepare their homes and themselves for Shabbat;  that pervading  sense of peace, sanctity, and people connecting with people, unhindered by modern technology?
Why not email me when you are next in Jerusalem, and allow me to share a 100%Jerusalem  moment with you?
