The City of David

The City of David National Park is the fulfilled vision of Be’eri, a man who is considered by some to be a national hero and by others as a dangerous, religious right-wing activist.

 A few years ago, I went on a short tour of Jerusalem’s City of David archeological site, as part of a symposium on the ancient history of the capital. The tour was led by David Be’eri, the man behind the vision and the mission of the site.

Be’eri led us down from the Old City’s Dung Gate until we reached a sealed wall, behind which, he told us in a whisper, very soon visitors would be able to literally touch the stones and the waters that have always been there, since King David’s days.
