Damascus Gate sprouts a tree of life

.


Jerusalem's Festival of Light in the Old City can start only when it is dark, i.e. after 8 pm.
Last night at 7:54 the sky above Damascus Gate was turning pretty shades of blue and pink.


Very soon the air got cool and the sky got dark and they began the projection of "Tree of Life"  by Heinz Kasper of Germany.
.
This virtual tree is for ABC Wednesday's V day.
.
P.S.  - Even better was how they projected "I LOVE JERUSALEM"  onto the gate in the 2011  Festival of Light!  See my post for the photos.

I love this Dina! I have a fondness for Damascus Gate. On my second visit, I stayed at the American Colony Hotel, so I traveled through that gate every day.

Do you mean that they project the Tree of Life using the walls as a screen? What a wonderful idea! I'd love to see it.

Shabbat shalom, Dina.

Very great idea for V! This must have been spectacular. I admire you for the travelling you do from your place to Jerusalem. I know that it is not easy and a lot of waiting.
