Golgotha Chapel.
Golgotha Chapel. Church of the Holy Sepulchre. – The Golgotha of today, accessible by step steps, has two chapels side by side, one Roman Catholic and the other Greek Orthodox. On the Roman side are two Stations: where Jesus was stripped of his garments and where he was nailed to the cross. On the Greek side, the 12th Station: where Jesus died on the cross. Under the altar can be seen the top of the rocky outcrop with a silver market where it is believed the cross stood. In between two is the Stabat Mater (Sorrowful Mother) in remembrance of Mary’s agony at her son’s death.

Chapel of Derision
27Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. 30They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. Matthew 27/27-30

The Living Jerusalem
Ivan Benda: Liwing Jerusalem. 2003. Budapest Wherever he might be in the world, London or Beijing, Haifa or New York, Budapest or Cape Town, a Jew, when he wants to go to the City, will say: I’m going up to Jerusalem. I ask you to follow his example. Let’s open this impressive book and walk slowly up to Ivan Benda’s Jerusalem, which seems close to us on the pages, yet is as far as the sky. Through effort and goodwill and above all, through love, we can bring this sky closer to our profane world. He, who took these photographs shows us Jews, Christians and Muslims the path to follow. by László Csorba

Pesach in Mea She'arim. Jerusalem.
Pesach in Mea She'arim. This quarter is home to the most ultra orthodox of Jews, some so exteme in their views that thay do not recognise the modern State of Israel because it is not a theocracy. Here in a world unlike any other in Jerusalem, more reminiscent of the 19th century ghettos of Eastern Europe, a whole community lives, trying to avoid the march of time around them.
