Jerusalem, The Holy City: 2 Jerusalem and the Jewish Tradition



Directed by: Alan Rosenthal

(44 mins) Part of a four-part series examining the political history, Biblical history and architecture of the three great religions that regard Jerusalem as a holy city. This part focuses mainly on Biblical history with a large section on the archaeology of the City of David, and an overlong section on the water system. The problems of modern political history are elided (the film refers simply to "reclamation of Jerusalem for the Jewish people").
