Church bells tolled across the holy city of Jerusalem to ring in Easter for the Christian celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. Jerusalem's old, walled city was crowded with foreign tourists, the heaviest turnout since the start of the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation more than four years ago. Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which marks the sites where tradition holds that Jesus died and later rose from the dead, was packed for Mass.

JERUSALEM - Thousands of Christian pilgrims from all over the world filled the narrow streets of the Old City of Jerusalem on Good Friday to celebrate on the site they believe Jesus was crucified and buried over 2,000 years ago. The pilgrims gathered near the fourth station on Via Dolorosa, the street down which Jesus is believed to have walked on the way to his Crucifixion. Then they followed his path through that narrow alley toward the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where they believe Jesus was crucified and buried.

In the late 1950s, when Teddy Kollek took on the challenge of establishing a major art museum in Jerusalem, he might have been whistling in the desert wind. The state of Israel had yet to come of age and Kollek, then director-general of the prime minister's office under David Ben-Gurion, had yet to become mayor of the historic city. Kollek thought his fledgling nation had to have a prestigious showcase for art of high quality and global reach, on par with the best museums in cultural capitals around the world.

Yusef Kaman, a skinny and wispy-mustached Palestinian teenager, offered a brief, wheezing commentary on the Easter season here this year, the first time in five years that Christian pilgrims have descended in large numbers on the holy city. "These are really heavy!" the 14-year-old said, panting as he lugged a pair of 6-foot wooden crosses down Via Dolorosa, the cobblestoned thoroughfare in the walled Old City that is held by tradition to be the path Jesus Christ took to his crucifixion.
