Jerusalem - A mosaic of faces and places
Here is a quick glimpse at the beauty that is Jerusalem, produced in honor of Jerusalem Day 2013.

Israel's capital is a mosaic of its people and its sites, of the holy and the secular, of the ancient and the modern.

A quick glimpse of the beauty that is Jerusalem, produced in honor of Jerusalem Day 2013, which will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 8.

Since the time of King David, except for the 19 years between 1948 and 1967, there has always been a Jewish presence in the ancient city of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. From 1948 until 1967, the western part of the city was in Israeli hands, while the ancient, eastern part - apart from a small Israeli enclave on Mount Scopus - was under Jordanian control.

Jerusalem, divided during the 1948 War of Independence, was reunited in June 1967.
