Mea Shearim QuarterApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

Almost frozen in time, this fascinating quarter provides a priceless glimpse into classical Jewish culture. Walking through this quarter has been compared to visiting Eastern European ghettos of the mid 1800s. Because this area is the home of the New City of Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox Jews, it is important to observe the customs and dress modestly (especially women) when visiting. Driving through this section after sunset on Fridays or before Sunset on Saturdays is considered breaking the rules of the Sabbath.
