We see a lot of different people here on Mt. Zion – Jews, Christians, Muslims, all groups, all ages.
But we don’t often see opera singers.
Until this past Saturday night, on May 28, as part of the Jerusalem Municipality’s Festival of Light.
At the same time, nearby at David’s Tomb, a musical experience from an entirely different world was taking place – and traditional Saturday night Melave Malkah feast – Hassidic songs and dancing into the night.
Opera and Hassidic songs, both on one Mount. Only in Jerusalem!
Thanks to Window on Mt. Zion for the documentation.

And a few videos.
