Public Scholars Project
Jerusalem: Holy – and Wholly Complex - City
January 12, 2019 at 12:00 PM | Gillette, NJ | Long Hill Township Public Library
Why can Jerusalem be thought of as a city of both joy and sorrow? And what does it mean to be at the intersection of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam? Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world, influenced heavily by the convergence of differing religious views, is a truly unique city that allows a look at the past and the present simultaneously. In this session, participants will explore the rich and complex history and how thousands of years have shaped how we see, understand, and experience Jerusalem today.
