Center of Jeruslaem Map Wall Clock – English
Wall clock with printing of the city center section of the Jerusalem map.
The clock hands are located at “Talita, kumi” square, at the corner of Ben Yehuda and King George streets.
“Talita, kumi” (in Aramaic) means: “Wake up little girl”. The origin of the name lies in a story from the New Testament, which describes a miracle done by Jesus, where a little girl, the daughter of Yair Galili, woke up and walked after being ill and in a coma.
In the past there was a magnificent building in this area, which served as girls Orphanage and was decorated with arches in front, a sign bearing the name ” Talita, kumi”, and a big clock.
The building was demolished over the years, but its front with the clock remained. The square is popular in the city today as a meeting place for the young crowd.
Made of glass.
