New Building in Jerusalem.

This is the central construction site in Jerusalem.  It used to be an old village that was used by the Government. I once had to go there when I was working for Prof. Moshe Prywes, running his Israel Journal of Medical Sciences.  I had to get approval of the non-profit status of the magazine.

Now, it going to be a very expensive high quality residential complex. I'll go back and take more pictures as the construction progresses and I see the gate open!

In the Middle of Jerusalem is the Swedish Monastery!

Jerusalem is huddled around the Swedish Monastery.   In this rare picture, you can see the flag waving!
It sits in the "Green Lung" in the middle of the city, and Katamon, is named for it.  "Kata" mean near to and "mon" is short for Monastery.  I have never been inside but that might change in the near future.

העיר העתיקה בירשלים

כשיש לי תספורות בעיר העתיקה אני לא יכולה לעזוב בלי תמונות 
הצל והשמש משחקים ביחד     
הצבע של הכסא הכבוד

הקדוש ברוך הוא משגיח על כל העולם

רחל אליס 

The light at the end of the Tunnel

This is of a building in Arnona, and it reminded me of the light at the end of the Tunnel. Remember that if you are a little down, that HaShem doesn't give you tests that you can't pass.  Sure, there are times that it seems that everything is insurmountable, and that it is impossible to go on.  Look at this picture and feel the hope.  Feel the light that is coming from the end, and you will find the strength to go on.  You have accomplished much in your life and will accomplish more.  Choose to see light and not darkness.
