Jerusalem as Modern City: A Virtual Tour of the German Colony and Baka

Hosted By: Qesher

When someone thinks of Jerusalem, they usually imagine ancient holy sites. Yet, Jerusalem is also a living modern city, with all its challenges and beauties. Join a virtual walk starting from the middle of the 19th century, when the first residents of the Old City left its medieval alleys and settled outside of the walls, and newcomers came and brought a modern and new way of life. This process of modernization, stretching through different political landscapes and an ever-changing human mosaic of religions, ethnic identities and languages, has been going on since then. Learn about two iconic neighborhoods to discover some of the characteristics of this process more in-depth, through stories and personal impressions.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
