Old Katamon

The Katamon neighborhood was founded in south Jerusalem during the British Mandate by wealthy Arab businessmen. The monastery of San Simon is located in the Katamon neighborhood, around which heavy battles were fought during the War of Independence, in which the monastery took over the entire southern part of the city. With the conquest of the neighborhood, the Arab residents abandoned their homes and were replaced by new immigrants and evacuees from the Old City. San Simon Monastery borders the neighborhood to the west, to the north, you will find Talbiyeh and Kiryat Shmuel, to the east , the Greek Colony and the German Colony, and to the south and southwest, you will find the Gonen or Katamonim neighborhood. The street names of “Katamon” were given after the military units that were present at the time, and the battles that took place in Jerusalem during the War of Independence. Its main streets are Rachel Imenu Street, which connects to Emek Refaim Street, and Koveshi Katamon Street, which connects it to Palmach Street in the north, Lamed H. St., and the picturesque alleys such as Negba St., Mishmar Ha’am, Bilu, the water sections, St. GDNA and other magical, quiet and green streets. The Misgav Ladach Hospital  and the Museum of Islam, are located in the neighborhood, as well as many synagogues for the Zionist orthodox community, the Anglo-Saxon community,  and the many immigrants from around the Diaspora. In the neighborhood you will find numerous religious schools and yeshivas, the famous Stieblech Synagogue, coffee shops, restaurants, hair salons, and exclusive boutique shops, all within walking distance of Emek Refaim Street and Hamesila Park. Old Katamon is a magnet for the religious community in Jerusalem. The Old Katamon neighborhood is characterized by authentic private homes for sale, while maintaining the facades and unique features, with spacious gardens, along with buildings built in the sixties and seventies, some of which are undergoing renovation and expansion. In addition,  the neighborhood offers garden apartments and penthouses, as well as new projects at various marketing stages.
