Old City, Old Family, Old  Texts

A wonderful old library is set to reopen to the Jerusalem public after 47 years

IT IS noon, and the worshippers in Jerusalem's Old City hurry past two Israeli soldiers towards the al-Aqsa mosque, one of the holiest Islamic sites. The soldiers glance at the men for a second, then go back to chatting beside a barricade set up outside what looks like an old stone house, a few hundred metres from the Dome of the Rock and the Wailing Wall.
