Silwan, the Ancient Yemenite Village | Daniel Luria
Daniel Luria is part of an organization called Ateret Cohanim, which, among other things, works to reestablish Jewish families in areas where they were dispersed from years ago. One of these places is Silwan, a mostly Arab town that sits just below the City of David in Jerusalem; its biblical name is Shiloach.
Travel with us to the ancient city of Shiloach, where Yemenite Jews lived until the late 1800s. Rediscover an ancient synagogue, meet the brave children at the “country club,” discover history that dates back more than 100 years, and finish with living history on a rooftop overlooking the City of David, the Old City, and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
This gripping episode is one that you will not want to miss!
