Although "Jerusalem The Golden" has been specifically designed for use on an 800x600 screen, it will work (after a fashion) on a 1024X768 screen as well, and uses tables to keep the text neatly in the middle, where it belongs.

Right click on these images and the wallpaper to download, or If you are not conversant with frames, tables, or the use of transparent .gifs for correct text placement, you can download the entire set in a zipped file from the bottom of the page.

As you may have noticed, this is a "Frames" set.   "Why use frames?", you may ask.  Frames keep page loading time down to a minimum - once the frameset has been downloaded to a browser, it stays there as visitors view your site.   Instead of a new page of graphics having to be downloaded or updated all the time, only the middle or bottom part of the page needs to change, thereby saving time and bandwidth.

I think the highlight of our visit to Israel were our two days in Jerusalem.   Oh, it was wonderful to spend time with the family on the kibbutz, but Jerusalem was... awesome!  It's easy to see why it was considered the centre of the world - the old, the new, the mix of races and religions - surely the whole world comes sooner or later to Jerusalem!  The Old City, a fascinating maze of "twisty little passageways that all look the same" (LOL!  An Award to the first person to tell me where that quote comes from!).  You could spend weeks, months there, and not see it all!  All the buildings are constructed from, or faced with, the beautiful creamy "Jerusalem stone" so that the whole city seems to shine in the sunlight.   Although we did as much of the dutiful "Touristy bit" as we could in our two days (I would have liked a month!), the places that stuck in my memory the most were the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the YMCA (the beautiful hotel where we stayed overnight), the view of the city walls and the bricked up Lion Gate from the Mount of Olives, the beautiful golden dome of the Dome of the Rock, the Western Wall ("Wailing Wall")... and the markets and bazaars of the Old City.  This set, with its ornate beaten gold design, could have come straight out of the Greek section of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (but it didn't).  Enjoy this set - and who knows?  Maybe we'll all bump into eachother "Next year in Jerusalem..."

"Shalom" is the Hebrew word for 'Greetings - Peace be with you!".  For those of you who would prefer to not to use "Shalom", I have included the mundane English "Welcome" graphic.

These graphics form a set - they were created for and on this background.    Try to use the individual graphics on any other background and I think you'll wish you hadn't!  You are under no obligation to link back to Digital Tapestries if you use this set, however If you do wish to let people know where you got it, you can use the little matching logo included with the buttons below

And now, here's the full set for you!
