Peaceful Jerusalem by Aliza Davids, Israel – PHOTO ESSAY

Jerusalem is the most calm and the most tense place all at once.

It’s also my favorite city to photograph.

Tomorrow, May 24th, marks fifty years since the reunification of Jerusalem which was once split and partially controlled by Jordan. For the Jews this was a very significant event because they were finally able to visit the Western Wall, one of the most holy sites in Judaism. Some people also consider this the beginning of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Nothing in Middle East politics is black and white.

Regardless, here are some pictures of, in my opinion, the most beautiful city in the world.
