Treasure beneath domes of gold

The Church of Mary Magdalene on the Mt of Olives is one of Jerusalem's most distinctive landmarks. Seven "onion"-domes bequeath a Muscovite flavor to the skyline. Beneath those golden domes, however, one finds an even greater treasure: a sisterhood of nuns who worship, sing, care for the grounds, and make handicrafts for sale. The sisterhood is a part of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission.
