“Mea Shearim” (“A Hundred Gates” or “A Hundred Folds”) is one of the oldest Jewish communities outside the old city of Jerusalem.
Established in 1874, “Mea Shearim” is now known as the “hard core” of Ultra-Orthodox Jewery in Israel.
Avoiding modern media, wall plaques are commonly used, oftern refuting Israel’s policy and Zionist ideology (although they do depend greatly on the Zionist Israeli welfare system).
Mea She’arim ( Hebrew: מאה שערים, lit. “hundred gates”; contextually “a hundred fold”) is one of the oldest Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Israel. It is populated by Haredi Jews, and was built by the Old Yishuv. The oldest Sephardic Haredi dynasty, Levi Kahana of Spain, has a religious cultural center in the neighborhood.
