I wanted to capture the ethereal quality of the Jerusalem landscape at night. Buildings shine brightly like jewels against a vast dark sky which is full of mystery. The views are expansive, sometimes hilly and mountainous or surrounded by ruins and walls. The fiery letters capture the vibrancy and energy of Jerusalem and the excitement and passion for learning Torah.
