- The brainchild of an American immigrant, Rabbi Meir Schuster, this is a home away from home for Jewish travelers who wish to connect with their heritage. It began with Rabbi Schuster arranging homestays for curious Jewish travelers with Old City families. Now, there is a men's and women's hostel in separate buildings in the Jewish Quarter with dorm accommodation between them for some 70 guests. The women's hostel has a cozy den area with boardgames and shelves lined with books of Jewish interest. Heritage House connects its guests to classes, programmes, and home hospitality in the Old City.
