These are the People in
THE Neighbourhood

Jared Goldfarb

Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre
An exploration of the diverse communities inside Jerusalem's old city walls. Besides the millions of visitors from around the globe that come each year to experience the holy sites, who are the locals that get to live so close to the epicentre of the monotheistic faiths? What defines their various identities, where have they succeeded as communities, and what challenges do they face dwelling in such an intense place? On this virtual tour, we'll visit each of the four quarters of the Old City.
