JERUSALEM takes audiences on an inspiring and eye-opening tour of one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities. Destroyed and rebuilt countless times over 5000 years, Jerusalem’s enduring appeal remains a mystery. What made it so important to so many different cultures? How did it become the center of the world for three major religions? Why does it still matter to us?
JERUSALEM attempts to answer these questions by following three young Jerusalemites and their families – Jewish, Christian and Muslim. Through their eyes, audiences will learn what it means to call Jerusalem home, and experience celebrations and events that mark the high points of a year in the life of the city.
JERUSALEM will also follow archaeologists, Dr. Jodi Magness and Dr. Nazmi al-Jubeh, as they explore some of the most extraordinary historical sites in the region in order to better understand this crossroads of civilization.
JERUSALEM seeks to build trust and respect between Jews, Christians and Muslims by showcasing their common heritage and inspiring them, and the public, to better understand each other. Audiences will gain a completely unique perspective of a part of the world that captivates the imagination of billions of people.
