Through the vibrancy of Mahanehe Yehuda market, flourishing art & culture scene, the flavor of Israeli wine,  the city’s academic centers,  think tanks, technology start-ups as well as through the diversity of its population and appreciation of its three thousand year history,  Jerusalem is thriving!

The upcoming fast-train to Tel Aviv, the rising engagement of Israelis with Judaism,  the growing foreign ownership of vacation homes in Jerusalem and the pending consideration of nations to move their embassies to the city are all  increasingly turning Jerusalem into an international destination-city.
