Jerusalem has for millennia held a special place in the minds, hearts, and imaginations of people all over the world. For millions of believers across the globe, Jerusalem continues to play a special role in their spiritual lives. Some of these people will be able to make the trip to visit the city, and for many others that trip will exist only within.
Via the virtual world we can connect between the city of Jerusalem and people all over the world and provide the opportunity to experience Jerusalem in all its many faceted variety. We can establish Jerusalem as a meaningful religious and spiritual destination in the virtual world, and create bridges in the process between faiths, religions, languages and distance in a way that has never been done before. We can enable people to feel connected to Jerusalem and to support the city’s special place in our world – whether they are across the ocean or half a world away.
