Come with me for a moment to the Southern Wall and the Hulda Gates. It is one of my favorite places in Jerusalem, just around the corner from the Western Wall. Stones block the gates now, but I like to imagine throngs of Jewish pilgrims climbing the stairs to enter the Temple Mount. The people mostly walked in one direction together through the gates. But it is the folks who walked the wrong way around who are the reason this spot touches my heart.
