Yemin Moshe or Nachlaot Tour

Yemin Moshe Tour

Neighborhood Tours of Jerusalem

Did you know that until the 1860′s the walled Old City was the entire Jerusalem? How did it become the big sprawling city that we know today?

The British Jewish banker Sir Moses Montefiore saw that the Jewish Quarter was becoming overcrowded and unsanitary. He made it his mission to improve the situation. His solution? Build self- sustaining compounds outside the Old City walls for Jews to live and work in. The first was Mishkenot Sha’ananim built in 1860. Scared and reluctant, people did move in. Once people saw that it was possible to live outside the walls, many new neighborhoods popped up creating the Jerusalem we know today.

Come with us on a half-day tour of some of these first neighborhoods!

We offer this tour in several different neighborhoods :

Mishkenot Sha’ananim and Yemin Moshe

  • See the very first neighborhoods to be built outside Jerusalem’s walls over 150 years ago!
  • View the Moses Montefiore Windmill and its beautiful surroundings.
  • Hear the stories of the first Jews to venture outside the walls.


  • See the home of the Tzaddik, R’ Aryeh Levin זצ”ל.
  • Hear the stories of the struggles to set up new communities outside the walls.

Quaint alleyways, tiny synagogue shteiblach, artisan shops and fascinating people fill the neighborhoods people were once afraid to populate.

* We also offer this tour as a private tour in Meah Shearim, or along Rechov Yaffo.
