October 10th - The Rebuilding of Jewish Jerusalem from the Ramban to the Old Yishuv

posted Oct 6, 2011, 11:32 PM by Jack Cadranel

This tour of Mount Zion and the Jewish Quarter looks at 600 years of Jewish history.  When Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman arrived in Jerusalem in 1267 he found the city in ruins and just two Jews living here.  By 1860 the Jewish population had grown to 8,000 and the community had begun to build hospitals, schools and housing projects.  The gates of the Old City were still locked at night but Jerusalem was on the brink of rapid development.

Meet at 9.30 a.m. just outside the Zion Gate.  Please wear modest dress for this tour.
