Jerusalem is situated very close to the center of Israel. It is also located near two other continents, which are Africa and Europe. It is found between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. The three main languages that are spoken in Jerusalem are Hebrew, English and Arabic. The Old City in Jerusalem is divided into four quarters and is surrounded by walls. These four quarters are the Jewish, Armenian, Christian and Muslim quarters.
