Rachel's Tomb
Jerusalem in the 1920s
Jewish painter Saul Raskin traveled through Palestine during the first decades of the 20th century and sketched the scenery. In honor of Jerusalem Day, we bring you a selection of Raskin's works featuring Jerusalem

Sahul (Saul) Raskin (1866-1966) was a Jewish artist who toured the country in the 1920s and 1930s. A collection of his paintings and sketches was published in the US 60 years ago and a copy was given to kibbutz Ramat Yochanan where Raskin stayed while in the British mandate of Palestine.
