Event start: 2pm UK/ 4pm Israel

During this difficult time for Israel, join UJIA in partnership with Stand With Us, as we go live to Jerusalem for a tour of Nachlaot.

Walk through the colourful alleyways of the sixth neighbourhood built outside the walls of the Old City. Comprised of 32 different and smaller neighbourhoods, Nachlaot was founded by Jewish immigrants from around the world that endowed each neighbourhood with their own identity.

Hear about the incredible characters and the diverse cultures who have made Nachlaot into a haven for haredim and hipsters alike, and how they are coping as the conflict continues.

Meet your tour guide… Yoni Zierler

Yoni Zierler is the StandWithUs Israel Director of Tourism and leading tour educator. Raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Yoni immigrated to Israel for his last year of high-school and then served (with excellence) in the IDF’s Kfir Brigade as an infantry squad commander. Upon completing his service, Yoni enrolled in the official Ministry of Tourism tour guide course to better understand the connection that drew him to Israel at such a young age. Since passing the rigorous Ministry exams, he has dedicated his work to sharing Israel with visitors of all backgrounds – from college students and families to personalities like Harvey Keitel and Alan Dershowitz. Yoni is happily married to Yochi, and the proud father of Golan Noam.
