0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


“Do you do your Friday grocery shopping at the Shuk [Machane Yehuda Market]? Look carefully at the traders you buy from and then come and visit again at night.

Thanks to Hila Babian who documented this beauty and sent it to us. Shabbat Shalom Jerusalem!

[Translation of text from video]:
"The Face of the Shuk:
100,00 people pass through the Shuk every single day. The stall owners come from different neighborhoods in Jerusalem – Nachlaot, Pisgat Zeev, Beit Hanina, The Old City. [1]
In the Shuk there are around 100 graffiti murals by Solomon Souza.
