Description: The familiar Jerusalem -- the above ground city and the subterranean one, the international and multicultural Jerusalem, the city we think we all know and whose images are known around the world -- never fails to surprise.
This potpourri of the sacred and the secular, the old and the new, conceals great success: an African village on a church roof, a work of art hidden away in Zion square and extraordinary events in the Mahane-Yehudah market after the stall owners end their day. There are beautiful spots with amazing tales all over the city -- among the majestic houses of Rehavia, on Emek Refa'im Street, in the alleyways of the Old City, in the markets and parks, on the sidewalks and on the rooftops.
Secrets of Jerusalem sheds light on the unfamiliar parts of the city, the places that are a world away from the Wailing Wall and the synagogues. Nevertheless, their beauty, the story behind them and the surprise of their discovery are truly breathtaking.
