Join us for an online exploration of the growth of the city from its beginnings as a small town on a hillside to the modern city it is today with Jerusalem-based tour guide Joel Haber in our four-part series, “Jerusalem: The Holy City’s Development from Antiquity to Today.”

After millennia as a small, walled city, Jerusalem finally took its first steps beyond its walls in the middle of the 19th century. During this next phase, five new neighborhoods were built, hugging the walls. Built by different groups and funded in different manners, these first neighborhoods set up the model for the creation of what came to be known as Jerusalem’s New City.

About our presenter:

Our speaker, Joel Haber, will be presenting this series live from his home in Jerusalem. Joel was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Israel in 2009. He is a licensed tour guide, specializing in tours of his home city, and he also guides around the country.

This series is made possible by a grant from the Congregation Ahabat Shalom Religious Fund.
