Lots to see and do...Burnt House, Yeshivas, bookstores, handsewn tallit, etc. Walk the streets to the Kotel. May need to be careful walking through on Friday nights. A few shops in the Cardo.

A walk through the Jewish Quarter is a must when visiting Jerusalem. Travel back in time and see the ruins of what once existed and witness the vibrant community living there now.

Travel back a few thousands years or see modern Jerusalem. It has it all. One era built on top of another. Here is the western wall--the holiest site in Judaism. It's the last standing outer protective wall of the second temple that was destroyed in 70 by the romans. There are cafes, shops, small museums--all within the walls of the... More

These authentic items in cool Jewish shops are much better quality and made in Israel, not China. Better shopping here than in the other quarters!

The people who live there are the most calmest beautiful loving couple that I have ever met. I thank them for my experience of being there the quarter is beautiful and quiet.

You cannot say that you visited Jerusalem without having visited this part of the Old City. The old "Churva" synagogue (destroyed by the Jordanian and recently rebuilt), the Cardo, the remains of the city wall from King David's period, etc. Are a must.

The Jewish Quarter of the Old City had to be rebuilt after wartime damage. Much ancient history remains but what parts of it lack in age is more than made up for by its sympathetic architecture and shady, welcoming squares and alleyways.
