    Editorial Review

    Renowned historian Martin Gilbert offers a history of Jerusalem in the 20th century through the eyewitness accounts of those who lived through it. Through documented accounts in letters, books and journals he follows the development of the city from a neglected Ottoman backwater, through the British mandate to the declaration of the state of Israel and the ensuing war in 1948, and on to the travails of the modern state which made Jerusalem its capital and created a modern city alongside the ancient one. Some of the most dramatic testimony concerns the division of the city in the 1948 war, and its reunification in the 1967 Six-Day war. Full of anecdotes that put history on a human level, the book includes the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin and the bus bombings of 1996. ... Read more

    Poems of Jerusalem and Love Poems

    5-0 out of 5 stars Asecular psalm in Jerusalem
    Amichai is the most popular Hebrew poet since Bialik. Israelis love to read him because he writes with clarity , depth, beauty and irony of love and war, and of the realities they know in their everyday life. A walker in the city, a shopper in its markets, a teacher for many years there was something down- to- earth and reassuring about Amichai. In his poetry he uses the religious tradition he knows , making often a kind of ironic secular poetry that plays upon the great literature of the past. His great strengths are many including a deep connection with people he is close to, his parents, his comrades-in- arms, his family, his loves. Amichai is a poet who gives the reader the sense of sharing one's common humanity with. He can take experiences which might seem ordinary and commonplace, and transform them into memorable lines.
    What a wonderful poet he is.
    Reading this collection will give insight and pleasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars lovely
    some translations could be better, but a lovely anthology of a beautiful poet.Try "hebrew verse" by carmi for english/hebrew of other hebrew poetry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of those voices you should stop and listen to
    Yehuda Amichai is the kind of poet whose words and images you remember at the oddest times. He sticks to your mind - maybe because the quiet force with which he speaks of shadow and light, places and times, seasons and colors, longing and joy. Ever-present in his work are the themes of love, loss, and the harsh reality of war, but the effect is never one of violence - Amichai's poems have always made me feel peaceful and strangely contented. He is a poet for empathizing with. After reading him I feel as if I had taken a long walk on a sunny afternoon in the quiet neighborhood that I love. Excuse me for the ranting, but I can find no better way to express it. His Jerusalem emerges both as a real - and beautiful - city, and as an enchanted place where (like in the old fairytales) nothing is casual or common. He writes in the way I myself would like to write. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A true journey of the soul
    David Patterson, author of this book, converted to Judaism because he believes the religion is true.But in many ways, even after his conversion ceremony, he still did not FEEL like a Jew.He had not yet come to thepoint of being able to feel Jewish "in his bones" as the Hasidicmasters would say.So he undertook a personal pilgrimage that would beginby visiting the sites of the concentration camps, and end in the Holy Cityof Jerusalem.Along the way, he would confront his own fears and joys ashe grappled with the enormity of the Holocaust, and the knots of fear inhis stomach when when he was asked by two drunken Poles if he was anIsraeli...

    This book is based on his daily journal from thatpilgrimage.Holding nothing back, David bares his soul for all to see. The result is a deeply sensitive testimony to one man's journey, but it isalso one of the most moving pieces of prose I have read in a long time.Hedoes not claim to have all the answers, but he asks questions which plumbthe depths of the human heart.

    I recommend this book to anyonecontemplating conversion to Judaism, but also to those who were bornJewish, too.For Jews who wonder if converts can ever be "realJews," this book answers in the affirmative.In many ways, DavidPatterson, despite his gentile birth, is far more Jewish than many of uswho sometimes take the gift of our Jewishness for granted. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A real gem.
    My son converted to Judaism last year, he went to study in Israel.He met an married a beautiful young Jewish woman who gave me this book as one of her all time favorites.It is extremely well written, a real page turner. I hated to put it down and would have read the whole of it in one sitting if I'd had the chance. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a great read, and who really cares to understand the heart of Israel's struggles for Statehood - from the human perspective.
    First rate!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Admirable Woman
    I read this book when I was 15 years old.Wow!I was SOOO impressed with Raquela's courage and integrity that at that point I decided if I had a daughter I would name her Raquela.Nine years later, I had a baby girl and her name is Raquela.I read this book again a few years ago and was once again impressed. Just a month ago my husband, daughter, Raquela, and I were able to go to Israel and I saw Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus.My daughter was able to see and walk the same places as her namesake.Ruth Gruber beautifully laid this story out and I agree it reads like a novel and is very hard to put down.
