About

Oh My Jerusalem!

In the holy, perhaps holiest, city of three monotheistic religions, this mother of five young children struggles.

She struggles her way through East and West, through wishes of becoming a Jew and dreams of becoming a Muslim, through Christian heritage and agnostic life. Explaining to the children what is going on here brings on their own little intifadahs and made us cry more then once.

And in between telling them stories about this city and this country, they long to go back home to safe and simple Europe.
