This week’s topic was inspired by our family trip to Israel at the end of August. You can see some of our photos in the Jerusalem Photo Gallery:
I was hoping to use this space to talk about our trip, but I was preempted by Katrina. So instead, I want to remind everyone that now is the time to dig deep into our pockets and hearts, but stay clear of scams.
In addition to the American Red Cross ( http://www.redcross.org/ ) many other organizations (Catholic, Jewish, Methodist, etc.) are collecting funds. I think the list at Network for Good is quite extensive.
Network for Good: Hurricane Katrina
Returning to the issue of fundraising scams, my friends at ScamBusters.org have created an excellent resource here:

Jerusalem Printable (** for premium members only)
A holy city for three monotheist religions, Jerusalem is the birthplace of Christianity, the spiritual home of Judaism, and the site where Mohammed rose to heaven. Jerusalem is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world, yet has been destroyed and rebuilt countless times. Learn more about Jerusalem’s tumultuous past at today’s picks.
Frommer’s: Jerusalem: In Depth
“Genesis relates that Abraham visited Melchizedek (king of Salem), one of the first known references to Jerusalem. However, for the next 800 years the city played no part in biblical or Jewish history.” Yes, Frommer’s is a travel site, but their in depth history is well-written and worth reading. Unfortunately the horizontal chapter navigation isn’t repeated at the bottom of each article, so when you’re finished you need to scroll back to the top to click to the next chapter.
History Channel: Jerusalem Timeline
Visit the History Channel’s Jerusalem Timeline to view three-thousand years of history neatly condensed into a single page. This is a great place to start a school report, or to answer questions about the timing of important events in Jerusalem’s history. Other worthwhile clicks are the Jerusalem maps from five different periods of history, including a modern map of the Old City showing the Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim Quarters.
History of Plumbing in Jerusalem
Without water there is no life. Learn how Jerusalem (and other ancient cities) got their water from this unusual article from Plumbing World. “From the city’s inception, its lifeline of water depended solely on hidden wells and underground cisterns. Fed by underground streams, the Gihon Spring on Jerusalem’s eastern slope was the ancient city’s only source of water at that end. Depending on the season, the spring could supply water to the city once or twice a day for a 30- or 40-minute period of time.”
