“For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’” – Teddy Kollek

“In the din and tumult of the age, the still small voice of Jerusalem remains our only music.” – Israel Zangwill

“Without Jerusalem, the land of Israel is as a body without a soul.” – Elhanan Leib Lewinsky

“The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world; it is more, it is the history of earth and of heaven.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity.” – Yehuda Amichai
