Jerusalem’s Mishkenot Shaananim
Jerusalem’s Mishkenot Shaananim is an international cultural and conference centre established by the Jerusalem Foundation.
History of Mishkenot Shaananim
This was the backdrop for Sir Moses Montefiore’s appearance, a man of exceptional vision who was determined to build the first Jewish community outside the Old City walls. To this end he purchased a piece of land on a hillside opposite the Old City and Mt. Zion in 1885, where he established Mishkenot Sha’ananim, which would become the cornerstone for modern day Jerusalem.
Over the years Mishkenot Shaananim has undergone a series of renovations.
In 1966, thanks to the initiative of Teddy Kollek, then the newly elected Mayor of Jerusalem, the area of Mishkenot Sha’ananim was designated for restoration and preservation. Determined to single out and preserve Mishkenot’s unique history, Kollek set out to restore the original buildings and convert them into an artist’s retreat and international cultural centre. The Jerusalem Foundation planned and supervised the restoration.
