This podcast is live recording of a special lecture celebrating 50 years of Jerusalem’s reunification with Dr. Rachel Korazim.
Sponsored in loving memory of Herbert Green z”l by his family who misses him dearly.
Jerusalem holds a special place not only in the reality of our lives but also in Israeli literary composition. The holy and the profane come together here on a daily basis. Is this the city of man or the city of God? Does her heart reside in the Knesset, the parliament and the Supreme Court of Justice – or on the Temple Mount? Will her secrets be revealed in the narrow alleyways of the market or in the wide avenues of more recent years? Must we pen only love songs or may we also censure her? The questions merge into the poetry of generations who have sung of Jerusalem from the days of King David the psalmist to the present day.
