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.

Totally destroyed by Arab artillery and heavy fighting in 1948, it was occupied by Palestinians until 1967 war when Israel regained it and refurbished it and resettled it. Well worth the walk through it.

The Jewish Quarter is our favorite of the 4 quarters in the Old City Jerusalem. The other quarters are the Muslim Quarter, the Armenian Quarter and the Christian Quarter. While all 4 have their own unique vibe and feel, and all have shopping, eateries, etc...More

The Jewish Quarter of the Old City is a shining light on Jerusalem, immaculately restored and wonderful to walk though. Pay the nominal fee to see the Hurva Synagogue, with its spectacular interior and rooftop views of the Old City. Of course all this leads...More

once in Old Jerusalem, this is the quarter to visit and do some serious shopping (avoid a visit on Friday afternoon or Saturday) once during shabbat the shops will be closed.
