Zak was super easy to work with and was not pushy at all. He has certificates of authenticity for his antiquities as well. Will definitely come back to him in the future if I am ever in Jerusalem!

This store has the most beautiful jewellery in the entire Old City…I should know, I’m a jeweller! I’ve walked the entire city and seen it all.

Fantastic place to get authentic antiquities for a fantastic price! Zak's Antiquities is a very relaxed breath of fresh air amidst the chaos of the Old City.

There were several of us who came to Zak’s and to merely say “Gifts” in the title of the store is misleading… the range of antiquities is very good. The salesmanship is thorough without it being pushy and it helps to be specific about what you like or are looking for as they have additional pieces “ in the back” … the family is intelligent and charming, their pricing is very fair. We can’t wait to see these objects in our living room back home. Thanks Zak’s!

On a recent trip went by Zak's but he was closed. A nice looking shop up the street showed me Roman glass items and steadily came down to less than half the original price! Finally made it to Zak's -- twice! First visit I dealt with Zak and bought a dramatic piece of green Roman glass set in silver. Liked it so much I went back and that time dealt with Ian. Bought a piece of blue Roman glass in an amazing silver setting. And a tree of life pendant. Both visits came in under $100. Both Zak and Ian are very friendly and straight-forward. And patient. No pressure! I know they give very good value for money. And do it rather elegantly. Highly recommended!

When I get to Jerusalem and enter the Old City, Zak's shop is one of my first stops. Besides being a great friend, I have found that I can trust him implicitly. I bring groups and I am confident that he will be honest and care for them. Be sure you check out his shop in the Old City if you go to Jerusalem.

We wandered into Zak’s shop during our trip to Israel. He is warm, welcoming and his knowledge of ancient antiquities is impressive and fascinating. He has all kinds of ancient treasures in his shop like pottery, coins, jewelry and Roman glass from Biblical times! I purchased beautiful earrings from him, made with fragments of Roman glass dating back to the Roman period 2000 years ago! He provided me with the certificate of authenticity for each of the earrings I purchased from him. I was thrilled when I found out he has a website. I have since ordered more items and gifts for family and friends from his shop online, including beautiful Olive Wood ornaments hand crafted in Bethlehem. If you are looking for something special for a loved one, check out his website! You don’t have to travel to Jerusalem to shop at his Zak’s, however if you find yourself in Jerusalem don’t miss this hidden gem in the Old City! Zak is trustworthy, his prices are fair and items purchased from his website always arrive quickly. I highly recommend to everyone!

Zak's is my favourite shop in Jerusalem, and my favourite shop keeper. His products are stunning - I bought 2 necklaces with Roman coins for my sister and her boyfriend, and they absolutely loved being able to wear jewellery embedded with ancient history. Zak also taught me how to recognise I real widow's mite from a fake copy. I have worn my Jerusalem cross necklace everyday since I got it from Zaks and love pulling out my olive wood nativity set. Honestly, I highly recommend his shop for top quality gifts from the Holy Land.

Oh and in these covid days, you can visit his shop online too :)

Honesty is paramount when investing in antiquities. In a time and place where trust is harder to find I highly recommend you visit this store. Zak's reputation for dealing honestly is second to none in Jerusalem, and for good reason.

Zak has the best gift shop in Jerusalem's Old City. He is reputable and you can trust his pricing. I have known Zak for more than ten years and visit his shop every time I am in Israel. Plus, he is a great guy and very enjoyable to talk with.
