Elie Wiesel - Lover of Jerusalem, Passed Away at 87

With great sadness we mark the passing of Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Holocaust survivor, teacher and author.
In recent years Wiesel served as Chairman of the City of David's International Advisory Council, together with other distinguished leaders from Israel and around the world. Elie Wiesel was a true lover of Jerusalem, the old and the new.
"Whatever you discover in the City of David has significance to the entire world's culture. The City of David is a center of meaning. You dig deep down – not into the ground, but into thousands of years of history – and it comes back to life. [In the City of David] we can see literally the place of birth of the Jews, where kings and prophets lived and spoke and worked and had their dreams – and all that is what you are doing here, and for this many people are grateful." - Elie Wiesel
May his memory be a blessing
