Haas Promenade

The rabbis of the Talmud claim that “ten measures of beauty descended to the world; nine were taken by Jerusalem and one by the rest of the world.” An impressive boast, to be sure, especially by people who had most likely not seen much of the rest of the world – but to stand on Talpiot’s Haas Promenade (Tayelet Haas) and see the Holy City spread out before you, caressed by the soft light of the Judean sunset, white stone glowing with subtle flame, would incline you to agree.
