Mishkenot Shananim

mishkenot shananim“Mishkenot Sha-ananim” was the very first Jewish neighbourhood formed outside the city walls of the old city of Jerusalem.

Founded in 1860, it marks the beginning of Jerusalem’s expansion to the west. Initiated by Moshe Montefiore wikipedia s and financed by Judah Touro wikipedia s, the colony had two rows of 2 rooms houses, and a flowermill, which now operates again. Within the neighborhood are also remains of the Roman era aquaducts that delivered water to Jerusalem from the South.
