Jaffa St is a main transportation artery in Jerusalem, and one of the first roads in Israel to be paved. Over the years the street became a hub for businesses, entertainment and shopping, and along its length governmental institutes were established next to coffee houses, restaurants, theaters and shops. Also, private houses of esteemed families in Jerusalem were built. In the 21st century with the opening of the Jerusalem light rail, the street changed its character and became a wide-open boulevard for pedestrians. Wander along the street and pass the Etz Chaim Yeshiva, Zoharei Chama Synagogue, Ottoman Municipal Hospital, mural on the Alliance Israélite Universelle School, Feingold Courtyard, Generali Building, the Anglo-Palestine Bank, and more.
Tour is offered in conjunction with the exhibit “Street Games”, an interactive, architecture experience inspired by the books of architect David Kroyanker.
