According to legend, the Jerusalem sky held off the rains for seven years while King Solomon built his temple. In the Jerusalem sky, the Bible says, a rising star announced the birth of Jesus. Through that same sky, Islamic belief holds, Muhammad climbed to heaven. Now the Jerusalem sky fills with the sounds of worshippers praying for peace in the synagogues, churches and mosques.
