Neighborhood
Me'a She'arim stands as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Jerusalem and is home to the strict Orthodox Hasidic people. Its name originates from the Torah, depicting the community of "100 gates." Limestone buildings covered in Hebrew line the cobblestone streets. Visit the fruit and vegetable market and pick up a fresh challah at the bakery. Immerse yourself in the rich religious culture, however be aware that strict "modest" dress codes need to be followed. Also, during the Shabbat, visitors are not allowed to take photos, use mobile phones, smoke, or drive. Men need to cover their heads when entering synagogues. A visit to Me'a She'arim represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jerusalem travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
