Honoring Jerusalem and its Diverse People
My Jerusalem: The Eternal City. Edited by Ilan Greenfield. Photography by Ziv Koren (Gefen Publishing, 160 pp. $50)
This book’s display of 80 iconic images by award-winning photographer Ziv Koren dramatically honors Jerusalem and its diverse people—Jews, Muslims and Christians—whether they are serving in the army, celebrating holidays in the streets or praying in historical houses of worship (at right, schoolchildren pass the Kotel). The accompanying essays are love songs to the ancient yet modern city by politicians, philanthropists, community leaders (including Hadassah National President Ellen Hershkin) and even a New York Times journalist.
