“Between the years 134 and 1099, “we know of no attempts by the followers of rabbinical Judaism to make pilgrimages to the holy city” of Jerusalem.”
A little levity for everybody. In 1099, there was a siege of Jerusalem. Did the Jews decide that was a good time to start making pilgrimages? Or right after? If so, I hope they fired their travel agents when they returned! I know. I know. The kingdom of Jerusalem was founded after it. Not that it was a particularly good time for visiting.
