A Journey to the Source

"Jerusalem, hills enfold it, and the Lord enfolds his people now and forever" (Psalms 125:2)

Jerusalem was first established on the hill on which you are now standing almost 4,000 years ago, during the Canaanite Period (Middle Bronze Age II). Flanking the hill are the Kidron Valley and the Central Valley and Mt. Moriah rises to the north.

A journey to the City of David, the ancient core of Jerusalem, is a journey to the source. The City of David was the first capital of the tribes of Israel and the spiritual and political center of the Jewish nation. Many of the books of the Bible were written here and from the small mound of the City of David came forth the belief in one God and the basic human values taught by the prophets that have inspired the entire world.

The City of David is where Jerusalem was born - the place where it all began.
