|Quote of the Day|
Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity. The Temple Mount is a huge ship, a magnificent luxury linear. From the portholes of her Western Wall cheerful saints look out, travelers. Hasidim on the pier wave goodbye shout hooray, hooray, bon voyage! She is always arriving, always sailing away. And the fences and the piers and the policemen and the flags and the high masts of churches and mosques and the smokestacks of synagogues and the boats of psalms of praise and the mountain-waves. The shofar blows; another one has just left. Yom Kippur sailors in white uniforms climb among ladders and ropes of well-tested prayers. -- Yehuda Amichai, from Jerusalim 1967
