I’m not sure whether Ein Karem is considered part of Jerusalem or not, but back when The Middle was a young man, it was considered a bit of a distance from the center of town. These photos, taken by “Donna,” were taken last February. Winter in the Jerusalem hills! Yum!

To recap:
-Boring Presidential debate this week
-Global economic meltdown
-Fasted, atoned, evaluated, made promises to self, watched retirement savings disappear despite cautious investement approach
-Sarah Palin wig went on sale


About the author



  • Ein Kerem is absolutely my favorite place in Israel. I always recommend spending a Shabat afternoon there to people traveling to Israel. Everything stays open on Shabat there! I think of it as as having been kind of half-swallowed by J’lem on one side, but you kind of have to travel down this one windy road on slope to get down from J’elm into Ein Kerem.

  • hello
    am mohammad
    live in jordan
    32 year
    am from ein karem
    can u help me to visit it

  • Wait up TM. His IP address is from Jordan. He could be this guy. If Mohammad is a Jordanian citizen, and he qualifies for a tourist visa, there’s no reason for him not to come.

    One of the sucky things about our peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan is that while Israelis flock to Cairo, Petra and Amman, hardly any people from there come here. I think Arab tourism to Israel is something that ought to be encouraged.

    So Mohammad, if you can manage to get a visa, ahlan wa sahlan, you are welcome to visit any part of Israel you like.

  • Good day to all,

    First would like to thank CK , to invite mohammed to visit his grand fathers Hom.
