The Quaker-Shaker Rabbi, Davey Crockett, the Sundial Kid, No Room for Herzl, and More:
 
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, taste and Sukkot of the new ghettos of the Old Yishuv.  We’ll visit 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.
 
Where to meet: By Roladin which is off 110 Jaffa St.
Expected duration: Approx.2 hours. Early bailout is not a problem; you'll never be too far from civilization (and bus stops).
Guide:  Moshe Kahan

Cost: NIS 55/AACI members NIS 45

Moses Montefiore and the First Neighborhood in West Jerusalem:
Walk in this picturesque community facing the walls of the Old City with a windmill built in 1857 as well as houses built by Moses Montefiore to encourage Jewish settlement outside the walls of the Old City. It is hard to believe, but until 1967 this border neighborhood was one of the least desirable and most dangerous places to live in Jerusalem.
 
Where to meet: By the windmill of Yemin Moshe on top of the stairs.
Expected duration: Approx. 2-3 hours. Early bailout is not a problem; you'll never be too far from civilization (and bus stops).
