Overview

Founded as the Middle East's first bookstore in 1908, Jerusalem's oldest book shop is pervaded by an atmosphere of pre-war Europe. It's dusty, it's cramped, it's old-fashioned – but it's a book-browser's paradise. And your kids can learn how to use a typewriter, the booksellers there still use them!

It's dusty, it's cramped, it's old-fashioned – but it's a book-browser's paradise. True, some gadgets of modern technology have made their entry – first a fax machine, then two computers, and there are even plans for a web site. Despite it all, Jerusalem's oldest book...More
