The Mormons/Church of Latter Day Saints tried for years to build a university in Jerusalem where they owned an amazingly well situated parcel of land. There was a great deal of resistance because it is well known that part of their mission when they send their members abroad (often when they are young adults), is to proselytize. For obvious reasons, the leadership in Jerusalem and Israel was and is resistant to this prospect. After agreements were made wherein the Church of Latter Day Saints committed not to proselytize in Israel, the go-ahead was given to build the facility. This is the facility’s concert hall, overlooking parts of Jerusalem and the Old City.
