About the City the Whole World Looks Up ToJerusalem is a city of the three religions that believe in one God. In the same city there are mosques, monasteries, temples and synagogues, the ruins of the Jewish temple and many remnants of the history of empires, armies and religions, the kings of Israel and the Bible, through the last path of Jesus Christ until the ascension of the prophet Muhammad.
All believers, members of the monotheistic religions, see Jerusalem as the one place where they must visit and pray at least once in their lives. This is why everyone sees Jerusalem as a symbol of a world city from which Torah will emerge.
The cultural, historical and archeological diversity of Jerusalem is inconceivable. In this city, which was occupied for 3,000 years by kings, conquerors and saints, almost every country or religion in the ancient world, each left its mark on religion, architectural, artistic and even gastronomic. The food in Jerusalem is simply wonderful. There is wonderful food here and a great variety of restaurants.
