Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

This is the most affluent part within the Old City. There are expensive shops, cafe's and restaurant. It is nice to sit with a cold drink or ice cream and watch the beautiful Jewish children play and have their pictures taken.

The atmosphere in theJewish quarter is a mixture of the ancient East European shtetl, American influences, orthodoxie and modern life. During the Six day war in 1967 the Old City was reunited ( was between 1948 until 1967 part of Jordan) and the Jewish quarter became a part of the Old City again. and a tradition of millennia revived.

Jewish Quarter was completely destroyed during the Israeli Independence War at 1948. Now it has not only been fully restored, but also the great excavations have brought to life plentiful sites which had been known before from the Bible only

I cant understand why I feel so relaxed and light watching jewish families live their routine normal lives in the jewish quarter! Families gather in the early afternoon, children playing, fathers tending to their babies in strollers! They all seem very peaceful and happy despite worldwide persecution... The jewish quarters is one of my favorite hangout place. During feasts, jews... More

The Jewish Quarter is the beating heart of Old City Jerusalem. Once you enter the quarter, you feel the specialness in the air. There is the main square with the restaurants and the synagogue, and then there is the Wailing Wall plaza itself. It is an emotionally and spiritually moving place. We spent 6 nights in Jerusalem and found ourselves... More

You can not go to the old city without visiting this place. The architect is different from the other quarters. Helps you appreciate the location.

A Thrill to see and we had the pleasure of dining with a family for Shabbat. They were Orthodox Jews and we are Reform so it was especially educational and the food was delicious too.

Beautiful historic section of Jerusalem allows you to stroll along the Roman Cardo Maximus, visit the Burnt House Museum, Hurva Synagogue and observe the rich cultural life of the Quarter. Four Sephardi synagogues are worth your attention. There are also some Christian churches here as well on its outskirts - the famous Western Wall.

Nice place for walks if you are in Jerusalem. It is a safe place here, you can walk around historical buildings or do some shopping. We eat here and stayed around two hours.
