Mishkenot Sha’ananim

Built over 150 years ago by Sir Moses Montefiore, Mishkenot Sha’ananim became the first Jewish residential area outside the Old City walls. Its name, Mishkenot Sha’ananim, or peaceful dwellings, emanates from the words of prophet Isaiah: “And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.” Within a few years, more neighborhoods sprang up around the Old City, changing forever the face of the Holy City
