First Signs of Autumn in Jerusalem!

Autumn in Jerusalem: Pomegranates in Machne Yehuda Market and Sukkot at the Wailing Wall

When the tide of summer heat recedes,
And the cloudless skies begin to fail,
The slanted light on hilltops gleams,
And a cooler breeze wraps the skins,
The first signs of autumn, such a delight,
For winter-loving Jerusalemites!

Jerusalem in the autumn - no place is prettier, more serene, or God-fearing. I love it!
