The 19th century saga of neighborhood building that saw Jerusalem expand beyond the walls of the old

the old yishuv. We’ll visit Mazkeret Moshe, Ohel Moshe, the Rand- Munkatch – Broyde Legacies and the
House of the Rising Sun, all from an insider’s perspective. On this lively tour you will be exposed to this

resonate even today throughout the State of Israel. Fun and informative for all ages.
