Many of them live in my neighborhood, Nachlaot. Only a minute walk from the Shuk, Nachlaot is surprisingly quiet and serene. Every alleyway, nook, and cranny is filled with flowers, old ladies offering blessings, and a mix of antique and modern architecture.
Each stone seems to be whispering a story of the first settlers of New Jerusalem, the artists and students who live here, and the future development of our people. And for a storyteller like myself, this place is a goldmine. I love collecting the stories of the Jews from each corner of the world who have heeded the call to come home, some by foot, some on eagle’s wings. Their stories are a testament to the resilience, creativity, and fortitude of our people.
