Once upon a time in Jerusalem

And this time, The Foreign Ministry Complex located at the city entrance since 1963.   

The narrow road on the right is today’s Agrippas Street, and in the photo’s center, you can see Jaffa Street, the old “Sha’are Zedek” Hospital complex is in the center and the Shneller camp is on the left.  

Anyone coming to the area today will have a hard time believing that this is what it looked like less than sixty years ago. The Foreign Ministry complex has become “Mishkenot Hauma” neighborhood, with hundreds of residential apartments built in the last decade.  

The empty area to the left of the “Shaarei Tzedek” Hospital complex is undergoing a large transformation and rebuilding of towers between 25-40 stories high.   

This is the area where you will find government offices, commercial and residential buildings.  

The new Tel Aviv Train Station is located nearby. The light-rail lies along Jaffa Street, and Agrippas Street became the main traffic artery leading to the famous “Mahane Yehuda” market.  

The Schneller camp- which is well known to the old Jerusalemites- became an exclusive residential neighborhood, hosting the wealthy ultra-Orthodox population from around the world, and the old “Shaare Zedek” Hospital complex was purchased for more than half a billion shekels. It had recently been approved as a complex that will combine residential buildings, hotels, offices, Theater Halls, and a modern experiential complex, in a concept that the city hasn’t seen before.  


This is Jerusalem – New and old, glorious history and modern renewal, old roads and a light rail, watermelon stands on Agrippa Street alongside modern 40-story Towers- all coming together in harmony in the most fascinating city in the world.  

Have a peaceful Shabbat, to the near and far.
