One of the holiest cities in the world. considered by Judaism the center of the world and the place where the world was founded.
A Jew who is in prayer is supposed to pray towards the direction of Israel the holy land. in Israel, the Jew needs to pray towards Jerusalem and in Jerusalem, the direction of prayer is to the temple mount to the holy of holies. a place where only one person, the high priest, can enter only one day a year (Yom Kippur) . that is the place where the foundation stone of the world is located according to Jewish tradition and from there holiness and light are spread out to the world. So the energy is directed towards Jerusalem from the entire world but it also spreads outward from there to enlighten the world.
