“And [God]... said to [Abraham], ‘Take your son... and go to the region of
Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will
tell you about....Abraham got up and saddled his donkey... [and]... set
out for the place God had told him about. On the third day, Abraham looked up
and saw the place in the distance.” – Genesis 22:1-4 The mountain range
from which Abraham may first have glimpsed Mount Moriah is the site of a
spectacular promenade today with breathtaking panoramic views. Financed largely
by the Sherover and Haas families in the 1980s, it is one of several observation
points that offer striking views of Jerusalem.
