Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

A must when visiting Jerusalem. Suggest visiting the old yishuv and other museums. Also worthwhile visiting Aish ha Torah yeshiva but check with staff. Great view from roof 10 sheKol donation requested

The Jewish Quarter features shops that sell thing specific to Judaism. Not as many vendors and many more Orthodox Jews. Vendors are not as pushy as those in the Arab Quarter.

Doesn't have that old feel like the other quarters. It's still lovely and clean, but if you want history and to feel something old and real, visit the other quarters
