The Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem

Hosted By: Pardes

Which quarter in the Old City is both the oldest and the newest? The answer to the riddle is the Jewish Quarter. This vibrant part of the city holds treasures from First Temple through modern times. We will explore the Biblical fortifications, the mansions of the high priests. and the humble homes of more recent residents before 1948. Karaites and Crusaders, synagogues and ancient markets, we will see it all, virtually!

Shulie Mishkin

Shulie Mishkin made Aliyah from New York with a Master’s degree in Jewish History from Columbia University. After completing the Ministry of Tourism guide course in 1997, she began guiding professionally and has since taught and guided all ages, from toddlers to retirees. Her tours provide a complete picture of the land of Israel and Jewish heritage, with a strong reliance on sources ranging from the Bible to 19th-century travelers’ reports. Alongside her regular guide work, she teaches “tour and text” courses in the Jerusalem institutions of Pardes and Matan, and provides tours for special needs students in the “Darkaynu” program. Today she focuses on virtual tours, bringing Israel to the world and the world to Israel. Shulie lives in Alon Shvut with her husband Jonathan and their five kids.
