Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

A lovely part of Jerusalem old city - quiet and spacious with a range of shops for the more discerning shopper. There are also some interesting historical site within the Jewish Quarter worth exploring.

Please don't miss the Jewish Quarter in the walled city. It is a spiritual place, the people are amazing and the shopping is lovely. The scenery and history is second to none.

Nothing like it anywhere else in the world. Here with family and extended family for a simcha. The sound of our holy city filled with the live sounds of children and their families now after 2000 years of exile.

A walk through the Jewish Quarter is a walk through history that shows the traditions, culture and religion of this area. The architecture, Markets, housing and streets explore the origins of the city and the people over the centuries.

Interesting and Fun. You can meet a lot of people who seems like just jumped out of history book. They are keep their identity as a jewish until now. You can say Shalom when you meet them.
