Highlights of  the Jewish Quarter


A less known point of interest in the Old City of Jerusalem is the Temple Institute on Misgav Ladach Rd. in the Jewish Quarter. The Institute gives a very good introduction to the workings and rites of the First and Second Temple in Jerusalem through film and guided tours of their exhibition. The exhibition to a large extent consists of recently made tools for use in the Temple according to the descriptions of the Bible, down to the last detail.



Background Information on the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem


The Old City of Jerusalem fell into Israeli hands during the six day war in 1967 after being in Jordanian hands for 19 years, and restoration of the old Jewish Quarter has taken place since. Today the Jewish Quarter is a pearl worth visiting for any visitor, and its narrow little alleys and stone structures are a reminder of how Jerusalem once looked. There are a number of shops selling high quality jewellery and Judaica artefacts, and several points of historical interest tucked away. The eastern edge of the Quarter has a wonderful view of the Western Wall, the Mount of Olives, the Temple Mount and David's City all in one spot.



Travelujah Tips


The Jewish Quarter of the Old City is mainly inhabited by Orthodox Jews and respect for their customs and holidays is expected of the visitor. All shops and institutions closed on Saturdays and Holiday Eves. Wheelchair accessible.
