Ein Kerem Review
The neighborhood of Ein Kerem (sometimes spelled Ein Karem) still retains much of its old village character. A couple of hours is enough time to explore it, though you could spend more if you take time out for a coffee. Tree-framed stone houses are strewn across its hillsides with a pleasing Mediterranean nonchalance. Artists and professionals who have joined the older working-class population over the last 40 years have marvelously renovated many homes. Back alleys provide an off-the-beaten-path feel, and occasionally a serendipitous art or craft studio. The neighborhood is served by city Bus 17 and is 5 minutes from Mt. Herzl or Yad Vashem and less than 10 minutes from the Hadassah Hospital. There is free underground parking.
