I moved with my family to Israel in August, 2004. In my spare time, I have tried to conquer Israel and I have seen the good, the bad and the ridiculous. I often am asked for tips about Israeli restaurants, movies, shows and cultural events. Please join me on my adventures!

Yemenite Quarter - another charming walking tour
Where else but in the Yemenite Quarter can you hear the person who serves you a cappucino at a trendy coffee bar sing traditional sefardic shabbat songs? Most tourists visit Neve Tzedek or the Port when visiting Tel Aviv but for true authentic insight into the ethnic side of Tel Aviv, a tour of the Yemenite Quarter is a must. Once again, the tour (in Hebrew) by the excellent Doron Ozer and sponsored by the Tel Aviv Municipality hits all the the beaten tracks of this area of Tel Aviv that has not yet been gentrified and is rich in tradition. And the eating stops along the way (chumus/pita/Yemenite bread) were great!
