Jerusalem Shopping



Bilal Abu Khalaf

Bilal Abu Khalaf Review

Patronized by embassies, upscale hotels, and fashionable cogniscenti, the family of Bilal Abu Khalaf has been trading in fine fabrics for Jerusalem's elite for three generations. The shop is an Aladdin's cave of Damascene silks woven with golden thread, Moroccan brocade set with semiprecious stones, and the finest fabric from Kashmir. Christian, Muslim, and Jewish clerics all purchase their robes here. Phone ahead to arrange a riveting 20-minute presentation of the shop's most beautiful treasures, and an explanation of the Crusader church visible through the glass floor.
