"Ein Kerem: Gorny (Moscovia) Monastery" Ein Kerem Tip by FruitLover
Ein Kerem, Jerusalem: 11 reviews and 44 photos
As you see, this church has a special roof, a tented/ hipped, typical to Russian churches from the 16th century on. It's very functional for long season snowy regions. (Jerusalem has max 1-2 snowy days a year, in average)
It's a Russian Orthodox Church, built at the end of 19th century. First Russians came to Ein-Kerem on 1871.
'Gorny' is the Russian word for 'mountainous', and the name for Ein-Kerem; 'Moscovia' means Moscow in Arabic.
The main picture was took not from Ein-Kerem, but from the upper main road to Haddasah hospital, south to the neighbourhood . (personal reminiscence: this was the road to the birth of my older son in 8th July, 2nd Millenium).
