The prayers took place in a tiny office behind one of the garages, filled with a quorum of mechanics, replete with oil-stained hands and grime under their fingernails. Some men had flowing beards and black velvet yarmulkes, others were clean shaven and sporting yarmulkes of all diffe...

The Jaffa-Jerusalem Railway was completed in 1892 and operated for over one hundred years until 1998. In 2005, Israel Railways opened a new Jerusalem station at the Malcha Station. The unused tracks between Malcha and the old Jerusalem Railway Station became neglected and filled with litter. The Jerusalem Municipalityamp;rsquo;s initial plan was to replace the deserted train tracks with a road, along...

Sounds like we were meeting in Manhattan to catch a sporting event at Madison Square Garden. Better than that, we were getting together in the center of Jerusalem. In the beautiful neighborhood of Old Katamon, Kaf Tet Bamp;rsquo;November (The 29th of November) is a charming street named in honor of the date when the United Nations General Assembly approved the partition plan and the creation of the Jewis...

It runs from the entrance of the city all the way to the Old City walls. Why is this main thoroughfare in Jerusalem named after a city located adjacent to Tel Aviv? From Biblical days (see Jonah 1:3) until the late 1800s, Jaffa served as the port city of Jerusalem. Visitors would disembark in Jaffaamp;rsquo;s port and then continue their pilgrimage on land to Jerusalem. Inte...
