In the foreground is a courtyard like many in Jerusalem, flower beds filled with plants grown all over Israel, irises, nasturtiums, cyclamen, geraniums, lemon verbena, and a small fig tree. Grape vines climb the pillars. A pomegranate and an orange tree grow in large amphorae. In the background, the lit up walls of the old city rise against a starry sky. A couple walks hand in hand, perhaps on the way to the cinematheque, passing beneath date palms and olive trees. A lit menorah marks the date of the wedding as the seventh night of chanukah. The Hebrew above reads, "I will betroth you forever; I will betroth you in righteousness," from Hosea 2:19.
