Montefiore's Windmill in Jerusalem Restored


The restoration of the historic Montefiore Windmill in Jerusalem has been completed. A tour of the site will be conducted by Israel Sunshine Tours and residents of the Yemin Moshe neighborhood where the windmill is located. Yemin Moshe, named after Moshe "Moses" Montefiore was established in 1891 as one of the first modern neighborhoods re-established outside the walls of the Old City. The windmill's cap and sails were replaced and restored this summer in the style of the originals. The tour will take place Friday morning. For more information call 052-447-1668.
