What is it about:
Jerusalem takes us on a journey into one of the most historic cities in the world. Over 5000 years repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt. Center of the three major world religions.
What makes Jerusalem so mystical, so interesting, so sacred? So important to so many different cultures?

3 young citizens and their Jewish, Christian and Muslim families try to investigate this question – and take the viewer right into their lives in this particular city.

The two archaeologists Dr. Jodi Magness and Dr. Nazmi al-Jubeh on the other hand accompany us to the exceptional historical sites and little known regions of the interplay and exciting crossovers of different religions and cultures that Jerusalem has always housed, and which makes this city still the intercultural center it is for hundreds of years.
