Talpiot Arnona

Talpiot Arnona is one of the most pleasant residential neighborhoods of Jerusalem. It is a family-oriented community with a harmonious mixture of secular and religious residents and a number of Orthodox, Ashkenazi and Sephardic synagogues. It is close to the center, yet has a suburban touch with many lovely single homes. The area consists of several sections.

The most charming section is North Talpiot-Arnona where the apartment Beitar Street 22 is situated in the midst of small buildings and a lot of greenery, 2 blocks from the new American Embassy site and the Terem Medical Center. Across the street from the apartment are new condominiums, behind and to either side of the apartment are small houses in an idyllic setting. Two blocks down the hill is Derech Hevron Street, across lies East Talpiot with many restaurants and the Kanyon Hadar shopping mall on Pierre Koenig Street. A little further down is West Talpiot, an industrial section with more shopping centers and restaurants.

Old Talpiot is an easy walk to Baka, the German Colony, and Old Katamon and a reasonable walk for fit walkers to the Old City and the Kotel. On Sabbath and holidays, a stream of Jews from Talpiot walks the way to the Kotel of "the hill to which all mouths turn." They walk the distance of about two miles. For more information, please see LINK Location.


Community and Religious Life

Arnona-Talpiot has two Ashkenazi (Shai Agnon and Lidenbaum) and two Sephardic synagogues (Hursha and Hakshiva Shavati). There is also a new family-oriented Minyan (prayer service) in Midreshet Lindenbaum which caters to young families and English speakers. Families from the Minyan serve as a support group for those who are new to the neighborhood, welcoming them for meals, offering assistance and making them feel at home.

Tayelet Haas (Sherover) Promenade

Only a few minutes away from the apartment is one of the best sites Jerusalem has to offer: the Tayelet Haas Promenade. It is a great place for a stroll with a wonderful view of the fascinating Jerusalem landscape, the Old City with its walls, the New City skyline, the surrounding villages of Abu Dis, Silwan, Abu Tor, the Dead Sea, the desert and on clear days the Jordanian mountains at the horizon.

Tayelet Haas Promenade has lovely flat walking paths with sufficient  greenery for children to run and play. There are many walking trails in the area and shaded lawns for family picnics. It is also a great place for jogging,  joining morning walkers or taking an evening stroll.

You don't have to be a professional photographer to make high-quality and impressive pictures, especially at sundown and when the city is illuminated at night.
