The week-long Light 2013 in Jerusalem is on.
It is our fifth international light festival in the Old City.
We walked over near the New Gate to see what everyone was looking at inside this bright installation that was sitting on the grass.
How do they DO that?!
The official prospectus says this:
Fountain of Life / Mekor Chaim.
Amir Zobel, Israel
"For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light." (Psalm 36)
A well of light that gives the viewer a sensation of glimpsing the subterranean foundations of Jerusalem's Old City.
The well symbolizes the unshakeable relationship between the building of Jerusalem and the Jewish people's roots: light and water, the sources of life, both serve as metaphors for the Torah in Jewish sources.
Light and water are found physically and metaphorically in Jerusalem's foundations, and they are what make the city the beating heart of the people who have converged on it for thousands of years.
