Tour on Wednesday July 21st - When Jews Lived in the Muslim Quarter

posted Jul 15, 2010, 10:12 PM by Jack Cadranel
On Wednesday July 21st you are invited to look at life When Jews Lived in the Muslim Quarter.  Is the Old City of Jerusalem divided into four quarters each with its own population?  It sounds neat and tidy but it was never as simple as that.  Populations have moved from place to place and the boundaries of the “quarters” have always been fluid and porous.  The tour follows the story of the many Jewish homes, businesses and institutions to be found in the Moslem Quarter between 1850 and 1936.  
Meet at the bus stop by the Jewish Quarter parking lot at 9.30 am.
Please wear comfortable shoes and bring hats and water.  The tour lasts 2-3 hours and costs NIS 60.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or
