Postcard From Israel - Shabbat Shalom From Emek Refaim


For the last month Jewish Humor Central has been coming to you from our Jerusalem Bureau in the beautiful upscale residential German Colony neighborhood of Jerusalem. The area is also known as Emek Refaim, the name of the street that defines this section of the city. 

Filled with restaurants, cafes, boutiques, bookstores, markets, synagogues, and an Olympic size six lane swimming pool, the main street and the side streets are always bustling with residents and tourists.

As we get ready to pack for our return to the East Coast of the USA next week, we wanted to share with you a glimpse of the sights and sounds of this charming enclave in the center of the most talked-about city in the world as it goes about its business on a Friday morning.

Shabbat Shalom!
