There’s something magical about Jerusalem at night. As the sun begins to set over the hills, the sky becomes a deep purplish blue, and the lights of the Old City begin to illuminate the night. At the nearby Mamilla Mall, shoppers mill about and diners fill up the restaurants.

The night becomes alive. At Italian restaurant Luciana, it’s hard to tell if it’s the company that makes the night special, or the wine and food. The guests are two people who, in our eyes, symbolize more than anyone what the united city of Jerusalem is meant to represent – human connection, empathy and tolerance.
