The doors of Hope

For more than 800 years, every time the doors of the church of Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem are opened from members of two muslim families – Joudeh family bring the Key and – a member from Nuseibeh family use the key and open the doors. The doors of the monastery Deir Rafat with are written with “Ave Maria” in many languages. I woul like to share some of the doors of different churches, Ommayad mosque in Old damascus, as well as the door of Sinagogue in Peki’in in Israel.
