1. In 1867, Mark Twain visited the Holy Land and came to Jerusalem. In his book Innocents Abroad, he described the city as “mournful, dreary and lifeless, sits in sackloths and ashes…” Twain stayed at a hotel in the Old City’s Muslim Quarter that has become famous more than a century later as the home of an Israeli political figure. What is the name of the building that housed the hotel, and who is the Israeli politician?

2. How many Jewish kings reigned over Jerusalem in biblical times?
