Summary:
Three thousand years of Jerusalem's history, told by families who are deeply rooted in the city. These Jewish, Christian and Muslim families share their knowledge and express their own special feelings for the city of peace that remains a city of conflict.

Part I: City of History This illuminating program features an in-depth look at the city s turbulent, yet fascinating history as seen through the eyes of her native inhabitants and historians.

Part II: City of Religion The spiritual importance of Jerusalem to the world s three major faiths is closely examined in this program. Visit Jerusalem s holiest sites with family members of the three different religious groups. Jerusalem is unique in its holiness. Christians pray for the peace of Jerusalem, Jews say Next year in Jerusalem and Muslims are encouraged to make a pilgrimage to the place were Mohammed ascended to heaven and where the final Judgement Day will take place. It is the site of Mount Moriah, where today the Dome of the Rock covers that place.

Part III: City of Peace The hopes and dreams for peace for Jerusalem s inhabitants are examined in this program. In Hebrew, the name Jerusalem means city of peace , but Jerusalem has been a city of conflict and wars for thousands of years. The city founded by King David has become the focus of devotion, piety and symbolism for three religions, as well as the scene of conflict and confrontation. Few cities let alone holy cities have seen so many wars, so many conquests and so much bloodshed, as this so-called city of peace.

Mount Moriah is also known as the Temple Mount, or in the Islamic tradition, Haram es-Sharif. It is a place where historic claim and emotions run deep.
