Restoration of Jewish heritage and history of Jerusalem is a must and paying a visit is the least that any committed traveler can do.

I was thinking I have seen all old city Jewish quarter attractions. As part of Hanukkah lamps "Hanukkiot" tour in Jerusalem we entered this site. It was built by first Jews settled in Jerusalem in the 16th century. There are four connected synagogues: the largest Yochanan ben Zakai Synagogue, Istanbuli Synagogue built by Jews from Turkey, Eliahu Ha'navi Synagogue, and Emtsai Synagogue. Interesting and unusual is the fact that there are twin Torah arks in Yochanan ben Zakai Synagogue. (One reason might be to comply with the Ottoman's demand to place the Quran in the synagogue). There is a small exhibition of the restoration that took place after the six days war (the Jordanian ruined the place) and several items that were saved from this place.
