Michal Ronnen Safdie has documented the rich and varied scene of three religions sharing the world’s most contested religious site in her gorgeous volume, Under My Window. The narrow passage below her window in Jerusalem’s Old City is a conduit for Palestinians on their way to work, Christians going to the Holy Sepulchre, Muslim pilgrims visiting the Temple Mount, and Jews on their way to the Western Wall of the Old Temple. Her stunning images capture both the intimate and personal and the large-scale public events that create the spectacle of daily life in Jerusalem. Join Michal Safdie and journalist and contributing editor at The Atlantic, Peter Beinart, for a discussion of both the fraught and beautiful aspects of life in Jerusalem.
