Street on Sabbath Morning

A man and a young girl walk through the streets of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem on a Sabbath morning.

I decided to walk through these streets on a Saturday around 10 a.m. and made two immediate observations: (1) the streets were nearly empty; and (2) the people I could see were dressed very nicely and walking as a family, on their way to a visit. The effect seemed to be universal throughout the entire neighborhood. The little girl in this picture was waiting for her family to come out the door of their house.
