FOR THE LOVE OF JERUSALEM
The cradle of the three major monotheistic religions
Jerusalem is the cradle of the three major monotheistic religions. For Judaism, it is the site of the city of David and King Solomon's temple which housed the Ark of the Covenant. For Christianity, this is where Jesus was crucified and later resurrected. For Islam, it is the starting point of the Prophet Mohammed's ascent to heaven.
Every year, the city welcomes more than three million pilgrims who rub shoulders with the 800,000 or so inhabitants.
For more than 3,000 years, Jerusalem has been a mosaic of cultures at the heart of many issues.
