In recent years, a window opened onto the nightlife in Jerusalem’s Haredi neighborhoods. We will head out for a unique sensory experience of flavors, fragrances, sights, and sounds as we walk in the footsteps of the yeshiva students who go out for food and drink to refresh themselves at the end of a long day of study. What sort of fare do they seek late at night? Does this part of town boast any high-end restaurants? What do they think is most delicious and most fashionable? What kinds of baked goods fill the tiny alleyways with their enticing aromas, which pasties give some of us memories of our parents’ or grandparents’ homes? This world, whose doors used to be locked up tight, has opened up a crack, so we can peek inside and sample its flavors, which are a world unto themselves. You will taste gefilte fish, kugel, cholent, cheese blintzes, walnut krantz cake, mandelbrot, and honey cake that will change everything you ever thought you knew about Jewish cuisine.

This nighttime walking tour of the Haredi street will visit Jerusalem’s Haredi neighborhoods. During the tour, we will be going through neighborhoods whose residents are deeply religious, and ask us to respect them by coming in modest dress, which includes skirts and blouses whose sleeves cover the elbows for women, and head coverings for men.
By advance registration only. There will be no option to register at the start of the tour itself.

This activity will be held in Hebrew

*The tour will be as planned in case of light rain, it is recommended to bring an umbrella. Please come with comfortable shoes.
