The Cisterns of Salvation, Montefiore's Testimony, Sherlock Holmes, Davey Crockett and the Sundial Kid
The 19th century saga of neighborhood building that saw Jerusalem expand beyond the walls of the Old City is the subject of Moshe Kahan’s insider’s tour of the sights, sounds, smells and taste (non-gebruchs) of the new ghettos of the Old Yishuv. We’ll visit Even Yisrael, the Hangman’s Shul, the French Connection, the House of the Rising Sun and more, all from an insider’s perspective.
On this lively tour you will be exposed to this pioneering communal enterprise and the tempo and tensions that permeate our Holy City and which resonate even today throughout the State of Israel. Fun and informative for all ages.
