and again a plot from the Gospel: "Jesus and the woman taken in adultery (which of us is without sin?)". This huge painting (325*611 sm) was painted by Polenov after a trip to the Middle East and Palestine in 1881-1882. Jesus sits near the steps of the Jerusalem temple

The Western Wall in Jerusalem is the only wall remained intact after the destruction of the Second Temple located in the Temple Mount. The western Wall is considered the most sacred site recognised by Judaism outside the Temple Mount itself.

A well known Jewish custom is placing a piece of paper contains blessing or wish (for good health, for peace etc). Here is a SS issued by Israel on March 26, 1979, to publicize the signing of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, depicting a piece of paper contains blessing for peace, placed between the Western Wall stones:

The song "Jerusalem of Gold" is a popular Israeli song described the Jewish people's 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem. The song was written by the songwriter and composer Naomi Shemer, who sought an idea for the song and eventually found inspiration in ancient Jewish writings. The title and first line of the chorus came from a legend about Rabbi Akiva, who gave his loyal wife a precious piece of jewelry called "Jerusalem of Gold". The phrase "Behold I am a violin for all your songs", which was coined in the Middle Ages by Rabbi Judah Halevi in his well known poem "Zion, will you not ask", provided the inspiration for the rest of the chorus. Shemer used this foundation to create the train of thought of a faithful admirer who is intoxicated by the fragrance and landscapes of Jerusalem, whose heart aches at the city's wretchedness when held captive by the enemy, and who swears to remain faithful forever.

"Jerusalem of Gold" Song, issued by Israel in 2018:

Gethsemane (Hebrew: Gat Shmanim) is a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, the place where Jesus prayed and his disciples slept the night before Jesus' crucifixion. Next to the garden stands the Church of All Nations, officially named the Basilica of the Agony.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is a church within the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. Within the church are the last five Stations of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa, representing the final episodes of Jesus' Passion. The church has been an important Christian pilgrimage destination since at least the fourth century as the traditional site of the resurrection of Christ.
