A Jewish Tomb in the Holy Sepulchre

In a Jerusalem spot beloved to Christian pilgrims, a sliver of Jewish history lies buried away.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is no place for quiet contemplation. Pilgrims from around the globe elbow each other to glimpse, touch and kiss what are for many the most precious spots on earth. Here, most Christians believe, Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, buried and resurrected.
