This photo shows the ongoing archaeological dig taking place at the City of David, a site just outside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. Those working at the site continue to unearth biblical and historical artifacts, including a recent stone bowl dated from the Hasmonean Period nearly 2,100 years ago. Shabbat shalom, friends.
