“The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world…” Benjamin Disraeli, 19th Century British Statesman
I’m in the midst of an opportunity to explore Israel as well as learn from Israeli and Palestinian academics, leaders and peace workers on the complexity of the issues in the Middle East.
Amidst the messiness of conflict, there is still beauty. The beauty of people and cultures. The beauty of those who love in the face of aggression. And the beauty of the land.
“Ten measures of beauty descended to the world, nine were taken by Jerusalem.” Talmud: Kiddushin 49b
