Click on the picture and enjoy how the setting sun turns the city into Jerusalem of Gold.
I post this, however, to show the layout of the street, which has seen much development in recent years.
The new Kikar Zahal park is on the left, at the northwestern corner of the Old City wall.
From there, a delightful promenade at the foot of the wall takes you to Jaffa Gate.
The photo shows Jaffa Road emerging from a tunnel.
If you look back at yesterday's post, you can just about see that the road is slightly elevated.
Grave sites were discovered near Jaffa Gate when the road was being built.
Jewish tradition (law?) would never allow a road to be constructed ON the graves, but a little bit ABOVE them--OK.
Now I need a title . . .
"Just go over" comes to mind.
You might enjoy the Chassidic wisdom in an earlier post by that name, back here.
