Yemin Moshe

Last Friday, I dropped Margaret off at JAIS and headed out for a walk. About 30 minutes of walking brought me through our neighborhood, through a fancier neighborhood of museums, consulates and hotels, and into downtown West Jerusalem. From there, I crossed over into Yemin Moshe, the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of the Old City (late 19th century). It’s a tiny neighborhood, all pedestrian, clinging to the side of a hill overlooking the Valley of Hinnom and the Old City. Nowadays it is full of wealthy writers and artists. A beautiful place with great views!
