The City of David

The City of David, Jerusalem of the biblical era, is set on a hill below the Temple Mount. This ancient sacred city, left in ruins for centuries, is being slowly transformed into a peaceful community of Arabs and Jews. As its name implies, the city was founded by ancient Israel's King David and is an area rich in archeological treasures of the biblical period. After the destruction of the second Temple, its Jewish inhabitants were forcibly evicted, but today, nearly 2,000 years later, the Jewish community is being rebuilt. Running time: 3.35 minutes
