A Tale of Two Cities

The Hebrew word for Jerusalem is a fascinating one. It is "Yerushalayim." - City of Peace.

So what?

Well the ending is curious. it's a dual. So literally translated it means "Two Cities of Peace." A strange name for one city to have isn't it?

Unless of course you're like Abraham and remember that the earthly Jerusalem was always to be a symbol of the heavenly one.
