Six decades after the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is the most prominent symbol of modern-day Jerusalem for Israeli Jews, a public opinion poll released Monday found. 37 percent of Israeli Jews selected Israel's Holocaust Center as the site that symbolized today's Jerusalem, compared to 20% who said it was the city's outdoor Mahane Yehuda market, 12% who cited the Israel Museum and 9% who said it was Mount Herzl and the grave site of the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, according to the 'Gesher' poll carried out in advance of Jerusalem Day. 22% of respondents picked other, unidentified city sites, the survey showed. The poll also found that 54% of Israelis would go for a stroll in the Old City if they had only three hours to spend in Jerusalem, 22% would visit one of the city's museums, 13% would tour the Knesset and the Supreme Court and 3% would attend a Betar Jerusalem soccer game at the city's Teddy Stadium. 8% of respondents would do other, unspecified things, the poll found. The survey, which was carried out last week among 504 respondents, did not include a margin of error.
