FC: Historical Jerusalem By Mitchell Bloss |

1: Jerusalem is located where Africa, Asia, and Europe meet. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and is located in the center of the country. | Setting/Location |

2: History | Jerusalem was first settled in 2600 B.C. Then in 600 B.C., the city was almost completely abandoned. In 33 A.D. Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and rose to heaven in Jerusalem. In 1700, a large group of Jews from Poland settled in Israel. Jerusalem is supposedly the most holy city in the world. |

3: Places of Interest | There are many attractions and fun things to do in Jerusalem. One of the favorite activities for tourists is the Tisch Family Zoogical Gardens. Hezekiah's Tunnel is also popular which is a 2700 year old tunnel full of gushing water. |

4: Historical Sites | Jerusalem is a very holy city and has many religious sites like the Mount of Olives, a holy site for Christians, Muslims, and Jews. There is also places like the Western Wall and the Old City which were destroyed by Titus in 70 A.D. |

5: Recreation | Israelis are not big on sports but there are many other things to do. You can go and visit some of Israel's oldest sites such as, Yad Veshem, the Old CIty, or Tower of David. You could also go on theRamoard's walk which takes you through downtown Jerusalem. |

6: Art/Culture | Though Israelis are not big on sports, they love art. There are many festivals every year such as The International Book Fair, The International Writers' Festival, and many more. There are also many film and dancing festivals as well. |

7: Geography | Jerusalem is located in the Judean Hills of Palestine at an elevation of 2400 feet. The Mediterranean Sea lies 35 miles west of Jerusalem and the Dead Sea lies 15 miles to the east. |

8: Climate | The southern part of Israel is made up of mostly desert. The northern part however receives an average rainfall of 15 inches every year. The average temperature in winter is 40 degrees. The average temperature in summer is 80 degrees. |

9: Cultural Awareness | The two main languages in Jerusalem are Hebrew and Arabic. The currency of Israel is the Israeli Sheqel which is about 4.5 to 1 United States dollar. There are many interesting meals in Jerusalem such as mabich, and maqluba. |

10: Miscellaneous | Jews make up about three-fourths of Jerusalem's population. Palestinian Arabs account for most of the rest. Jerusalem has over 2,000 archaeological sites and there are also more than 60 museums. |

11: Journal #1 | I woke up in a beautiful hotel with a view of the Western Wall. I went downstairs to get some breakfast before heading out. There are so many things to do here, it was hard to choose my first place to visit. I decided to go to the Old City first. It was amazing, Titus destroyed it and the Western Wall in 70 A.D but the remains are really cool. |

12: | Last knight, someone recommended that I go to the Tower of David museum today. I am getting a coffee and then heading over there. The Western Wall yesterday was amazing. There were thousands of people there and it is amazing to think the wall was built two millenniums ago. This city truly is amazing. | Journal #2

13: | I am so glad that someone recommended the Tower of David museum to me. The architecture is incredible. I also went to Hezekiah's Tunnel. It is a really long tunnel with a river running through it. I don't think I could ever run out of things to do in this city. | Journal #3

14: | It is now my last day in Jerusalem, I have had a great time and will be missing this place for a long time. I was getting used to the way of life around here. I have even picked up some of the language. Namuste, that means hello in Hebrew. There are so many fun things to do in this city and I am sad that I didn't get to do them all. I know I will be visiting this place again sometime soon. | Journal #4

15: | | Kansas City and Jerusalem | Kansas City and Jerusalem are two very different places. Kansas City is known for barbecue and sports while Jerusalem is known for its ancient museums and historical sites. There are some similarities though such as that there are lots of museums in each city and the fact that neither city is a particularly big city.

16: | This journey has made me realize that there still are beautiful cities in the world. Also it made me realize that there are some cool museums out there. Jerusalem is definitely the place to go if you want to go see some cool museums. The journey that has had the biggest impact on my life is my fishing trip to Canada last year. I learned lots of new things and saw that there still is beautiful country in the world. | Journeys

17: | During this project I learned some very interesting things about Jerusalem that I did not know before I started. I didn't believe it at first, but I think Jerusalem is one of the most historical cities in the world. "The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world; it is more, it's the history of earth and of heaven." Benjamin Disraeli
