I asked D if “Jerusalem” has a meaning in Hebrew? Well, apparently it’s quite vague, nobody knows if the signification has to be found in Hebrew or in the other languages and dialects spoken by other people of the region… I was wondering because it has always been a city that I’ve found interesting historically, like Istanbul (Constantinople), and really would like to visit those places with D when we’ll have the opportunity (time, money & the political stability?)!
Jerusalem is also referred as the “City of David”, and “Daughter of Zion” in the Old Testament, but unfortunately the Holy city is contested by Jews & Christians, and the Muslims. Here is the link to the Lonely Planet page about Israel.
