What Jerusalem Means to Us: Jewish Perspectives and Reflections edited by Saliba Sarsar and Carole Monica C. Burnett
WHAT JERUSALEM MEANS TO US: JEWISH PERSPECTIVES AND REFLECTIONS
Jerusalem is a distinctive city for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and their adherents. It is equally special for Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians, having been their home for decades, if not centuries and millennia.
What Jerusalem Means to Us: Jewish Perspectives and Reflections addresses the intimate and unique connections among Jews, Judaism, and Jerusalem along a variety of dimensions - religious, spiritual, historical, cultural, political, psychological, and social. These are manifested through the perspectives and reflections of sixteen Jewish authors representing different backgrounds. The resultant essays present a rich array of personal and professional transformations, extraordinary love and hope for Jerusalem, as well as an honest appraisal of some of the challenges of daily living.
