From Florida to Jerusalem


I was walking to the Italian Jewish Art Museum when I spotted this institution for the first time. 
I wasn't familiar with Southeastern University but I figured this must be another new Jerusalem branch of an American college, most likely Protestant, probably Evangelical. 
.
Back home, I Googled and found  two opposing views of this school:
  Southeastern's Jerusalem campus website  vs.  an anti-"missionary" Jewish website
.
As I have written many times, nothing is simple in Israel; life is always made complicated.

Complicated or non-boring?
Fascinating for sure.

Well... you do live in a very "interesting" controversial, historical, complicated place, to be sure.

I hope they are not recruiting new souls and converting them. But at least they got the architecture right... it fits right into the Jerusalem landscape.

Interesting. May be I am a pessimist, but I notice that every change is often a worsening, in all fields!

You made a nice discovery, Dina! It's always great to find new places out on a walk.
