Preservation of Jerusalem’s Recent History

Three articles about preservation in Jerusalem have recently been published by The Jerusalem Post.  One describes the restoration and re-opening of the Ohel Yitzhak synagogue in the Moslem Quarter of the Old City.  The other two lament the many buildings of historical value in Jerusalem which have been destroyed or are slated to be destroyed.  Buildings which are older than 1700 are automatically preserved, but landmarks of more recent history are in danger.
