Guardian of the threshold?
A cat sits atop the gate next to a church in old Jaffa.
Immanuel Church was built in 1904 in Jaffa's American/German Colony.
Its history is so interesting, and unique.
The Protestant church holds services on Saturday in Hebrew and English.
On Sundays only in English.
Linking this post to Camera-Critters and inSPIREd Sunday memes.
UPDATE: Just learned that today is Cat Day (well, in America at least). Happy Cat Day!
