Photo Friday: The Glory of the God of Israel

Eastern Gate of Old City (Photo: flickr/gregjohnston)

"They stopped at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD's house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them." (Ezekiel 10:19)

Behold the majestic Eastern Gate of Jerusalem's Old City. Also called the Golden Gate or the Gate of Mercy (Sha'ar Harachamimi in Hebrew), it has been sealed for centuries. Not only do Jews believe the Messiah will enter through this gate, but traditionally on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement, and the holiest day in Judaism) a Temple messenger was sent east from the gate into the desert with a sacrificial lamb. Shabbat shalom, friends.
