The Jerusalem carillon appears in the worldwide list of carillons on 
the WCF Website (www.carillon.org), though with minimal information. 
There is a page about this carillon on the GCNA Website, including a 
locator map and link to the Website of the Jerusalem YMCA.

The Jerusalem tubular chime now has a similar new page on the 
TowerBells.org Website.

For those who like to travel, as Alan obviously does, you might find 
it helpful to explore the regional locator map sets which are 
available on those two Websites.  The GCNA Website has one set for 
traditional carillons worldwide, and another for all tower bell 
instruments worldwide (excepting only rings in the British Isles), 
though a few parts are still incomplete.  The TowerBells Website has 
a set for tubular chimes worldwide (excepting only those in the 
British Isles).

Corrections, suggestions and questions are always welcome.
