A Dual Narrative in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem
The Jewish Quarter is the focal point of Israeli-Jewish Jerusalem – a New-Ancient mix full of synagogues, yeshivot and excited visitors. It hasn’t always been like this, though. Prior to 1948, like the rest of the Old City, it was a more mixed area, home to both Jews and Muslims, while Jews also lived elsewhere in the city. On this virtual dual narrative tour we’ll discover the hidden history of the Jewish Quarter - including synagogues, mosques, archaeological remains and residential homes (both Jewish and Muslim) - in an attempt to gain a deeper understanding of the role the Old City plays in the consciousness of Israelis and Palestinian alike.
