During their tour to Jerusalem and the Holy Land Dec. 26-Jan. 6, members of the Tabernacle Choir pose for a group photograph at one of the most famous landmarks in Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock. The mosque, located on Temple Mount, is, according to Muslim belief, where Mohammed ascended to heaven. Temple Mount is the site where it is believed that Abraham took Isaac to be sacrificed.
