“Jerusalem Mix” – A tour of the Nahlaot neighborhoods
|Tour the courtyards and houses in the neighborhoods of Nahlaot – 32 neighborhoods in the heart of the city – in search of tastes and smells, melodies and memories.|
Let us wander among the courtyards and alleyways of the Nahlaot neighborhoods in the heart of the city, in search of the customs, traditions, and memories of the many communities from all the corners of the world that have come together in Jerusalem: Yemenites and Persians, Georgians and Kurds, Ashkenazim and Sephardim. We will learn about one of the 36 Just Men who lived here in a one-room apartment, about the alehouse that became a prayer house, about the childless nobleman who created a neighborhood, about the inspiration for the play Bustan Sephardi, and much, much more … a variety of stories that combine to form a fascinating and heartwarming human mosaic.
For dessert, we take in the market of Mahane Yehudah, a festival of
lively colors and sights.
The sites of this tour include the neighborhood of Even Israel, Batei Goral, the neighborhoods of Mazkeret Moshe and Ohel Moshe, Batei Broida, and the Mahane Yehuda market.
