Old City Jerusalem Ketubah
by Susan Cone Porges
Immersed in history, the Old City is home to several sites of key religious importance: the Temple Mount and its Western Wall for Jews, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, and the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims. The original painted in watercolor washes with sepia pen and ink details, this beautiful traditional subject symbolizes the meeting of all cultures and the rich history we share.
