“HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THE EVER SO ANNOYING TASK OF FINDING HOUSING (TEMPORARY & PERMANENT) BY AVOIDING CERTAIN PITFALLS, FOR MEN & WOMEN, W/ FOTOS, part (1)”
Israel has the highest real estate in the world. Today, I will introduce you to a very small suburb in West Jerusalem, called Har Nof. Yes, you can find a lot of stats about it; however, I hope to add some color and smells to the articles or information you may have previously read about it.
There is no mosque and it is next to the Jerusalem Forest. Most people will caution you to never go thru the forest alone or at night. There are huge families of coyotes who croon all night. Also, (so they say)it is the getaway place for the thieves responsible for the many recent unfortunate incidents.
The view includes Hadassah Hospital and Givat Shaul. To an outsider, it seems that everyone is programmed like in the movie, ‘The Stepford Wives’. This is a very religious community with a wide variety of choices of where to pray. The many really beautiful synagogues include:
And many others.
There are no conservative synagogues or reform temples. There are many chevra where people go to homes to pray or in a building’s entrance way.
Many ‘famous’ people live there including Baba Sali’s sister and the previous Sephardic Rabbi of Jerusalem.
There are many lectures continuously going on and can be seen in the publication, ‘THE HAR NOF WEEKLY’, Harnofweekly@gmail.com. The listing is color-coded: blue for men, pink for women, yellow for both are allowed to attend and sit together at the location provided.
There is no wifi café; however, there are (3) three restaurants (bagels/salads, burgers, pizza), and an ice cream store. Hint for you entrepreneurs.
The location is next to Givat Shaul whose main industry is to provide us the lucky customer with wonderful bread and pastries of all types. Driving through this industrial area is such a pleasure. This is one of those times when you see how lucky the consumer is when there is healthy competition.
The Angel bakery, very well known all over the world is open (24) hours in some locations. Bon Appetit!
This article is dedicated to Mr. Moshe Mizrahi, a life-long resident of Jerusalem.
Thank you to my readers who send me such sweet messages, it really makes my day, be well.
