Jerusalem, Israel: Temple Mount and The Dome of the Rock

Jerusalem, Israel: Temple Mount and The Dome of the Rock


Jerusalem is a sprawling
and modern city of about 800,000 people. Exploring its shopping
boulevards and malls, an American feels
right at home. But its historic core,
The Old City, home to around 35,000,
feels lost in time. Its venerable walls corral
a tangle of vibrant sights. Within a 10-minute walk, you can see the Church
of the Holy Sepulchre, so sacred to
Christians… the Dome of the Rock,
treasured by Muslims… and at Temple Mount, the
holiest place in Judaism, the Western Wall. For so many people, Jerusalem is the
closest place on earth to heaven. Much of Jerusalem’s importance
rests upon a very special rock, which lies under
this glittering dome. Muslims believe Muhammad
journeyed to heaven from this rock,
and they’ve worshiped here for 1,300 years. This glittering shrine,
the Dome of the Rock, is one of Jerusalem’s
enduring landmarks. Intricate geometric designs
in stone and tile fit within its pure
and simple lines. While today this plaza
functions as massive mosque
for Muslims, Jews call this place
Temple Mount. It was the sight of their
ancient temple complex, only the foundation
of which survives. It’s here
that they believe Abraham, as a test of his faith, was asked to sacrifice
his son, Isaac. Considering this spot
the center of the earth, Jews have worshiped here
for 3,000 years. A thousand years before Christ, King David united
the 12 tribes of Israel and captured Jerusalem. His son, Solomon, built
the First Temple right here. It was later destroyed
and the Second Temple was built. Then came the catastrophic year
for the Jews — 70 AD — when the Romans
destroyed their temple and ushered in the Diaspora. That’s when the Jews became
a people without a land and dispersed
throughout the world. Here, at that surviving bit
of foundation, called the Western Wall,
Jews mourn a horrible past and pray for a
better future. The square operates as
an open-air synagogue. [Praying in Hebrew] The faithful believe
prayers left in cracks between these ancient stones
will be answered. It’s a lively scene, with
intense, yet private, worship mixing with the joyous
commotion of Jewish families from around the world
celebrating bar mitzvahs, a ritual coming of age.
