Discovering the Stones That Speak in Jerusalem
In the Middle East, the smartest people know that there’s plenty they don’t know. Touring Jerusalem with NGO Ir Amim, any traveler—regardless of personal politics or biases—can learn about the complex religious, political, and human geography of the holy city. Controversial but fair, the tour is an excellent substitute for media representations of this incredibly complicated conflict. In Jerusalem, the ancient stones tell their own stories if you’re willing to listen. You’ll be smarter afterward, but only because you know that there’s even more that you don’t know.
