With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.We started round 10 of the fascinating meme of ABC. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with Q.
The Q is an extremely difficult letter, especially for somebody who wants to dedicate her posts to Israel for the next few weeks, but I found the word Quarter. The Old City of Jerusalem is divided into four quarters: The Jewish Quarter, the Armenian Quarter,the Christian Quarter and the Muslim Quarter. Dina and I went mostly to the Christian Quarter, as there was no time to visit the others. We entered the Christian Quarter through the New Gate and saw many churches , the largest of them is the Holy Sepulchre, the smallest a Greek chapel, where Dina and I were welcomed by a Greek nun.(See my post of 24th April)
I'll show three of the seven gates used to enter the Old City. There is an eighth gate, which is sealed. This is the Golden Gate and will be opened when, according to the Christians, the Messiah will enter the city.
