I visited Jerusalem during Jewish Passover or Pesach. Hence the reason for crowds of Jews within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem making their way through the narrow streets for the Western Wall. Passover is the most important feast in the Jewish religious calendar. It commemorates the liberation of the Jews from slavery in Egypt and the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea as told in Exodus of the Bible
Jerusalem is located on a plateau between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea and is considered the most holy to three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
