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.

The Jewish Quarter gives a first time visitor a view of things Jewish: people, synagogue, custom, house, food, community, interactions... *Heartwarming to see and to meet wonderful people *Good learning experience - the visit is worth thousand words...
