Jerusalem Map Clock
A glass wall clock with printing of part of the city center of Jerusalem map.
The clock hands are located at a square called “Talita kumi” square, at the corner of Ben Yehuda and King George streets.
The origin of the name, translated from Aramaic to Hebrew is literally: “Wake up little girl”, lies in the New Testament story. The story describes a miracle done by Jesus, which caused a little girl – the daughter of Yair Galili, to wake up and walk 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 still.
The square is popular in the city today as a meeting place for the young people.
It is made of glass.
