Book review: Tales of Jerusalem

Jerusalem is a city of gold, bronze and light, at least according to Naomi Shemer’s anthem “Jerusalem of Gold.” For some, it’s a holy place, one where they feel closer to God. For others, its religious aspects are less important: it’s just a place to live, much like any other. The contradictions inherent in these two ideas make Jerusalem an excellent background for writers looking to tell a wide variety of stories.

Opinion

Musical paradox

While practicing listening to music with my cochlear implant, I’ve been mining songs from my younger days. In order for something to actually sound like music, I have to be able to hear the melody in my head. That’s much easier with older songs; meaning music that was popular in the 1960s and ‘70s.
