Jerusalem is the capital and largest city of Israel, though most other countries and the United Nations do not recognize it as Israel's capital. It is a holy city to Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, and one of the oldest cities in the world.

The Old City of Jerusalem is that part of Jerusalem surrounded by the impressive 16th-century Ottoman city walls and representing the heart of the city both historically and spiritually.

Ein Kerem is a secluded village suburb on the outskirts of West Jerusalem.

West Jerusalem represents the modern commercial heart of the city, having become the focus for development in the capital from the time of Israeli independence in 1948 to the reunification of the city with the Six Day War in 1967.

Spiritual center

East Jerusalem represents the eastern half of the once-divided city of Jerusalem.

Haredi or Chareidi Jerusalem refers to the parts of Jerusalem which are overwhelmingly populated by Haredi Jews.
