The Jewish Quarter combines dramatic evidence of Jerusalem’s most significant history with fun people-watching, shopping, restaurants and cafes. Jerusalem 2,000 years ago comes back life at the Burnt House, with its fascinating audio-visual dramatization and at the underground Herodian Mansions. Nearby is the Broad Wall, which fell to the Babylonians in 586 BCE. Follow the huge colonnade to the Cardo, ancient “Main Street” the heart of the shopping area. The medieval Jewish experience is showcased in the Four Sephardic Synagogues, where community life thrives again, as it does at the restored and newly reopened 19th-century Hurva Synagogue.
