Rousing multimedia extravaganza for the masses

Jerusalemite joined thousands of, er, Jerusalemites at the Moshe Safdie-designed plazas flanking the Old City walls near Jaffa Gate for The Wall, an impressive spectacle indeed. There were bright, colored lights; projected video depicting Biblical, contemporary military and even theological connections between the people of Israel and the capital; a pyrotechnical display; and even a closing message from our besmirked Mayor Uri Lupolianski, thanking us all for having schlepped out.


The Passover-enjoying masses, mostly from the nationalist-religious sector but with a few haredim and secular folk thrown in for good measure, seemed roused enough, spilling out onto closed-for-traffic main thoroughfares, area parks and, of course, the Mamilla Mall (above).
