Fodor's Review

Think of Yefet as a sort of thread between eras: beneath it is the old market area, while all around you stand schools and churches of the 19th and 20th centuries. Several deserve mention. At Number 21 is the Tabitha School, established by the Presbyterian Church of Scotland in 1863. Behind the school is a small cemetery where some fairly prominent figures are buried, including Dr. Thomas Hodgkin, the first to define Hodgkin's disease. Number 23 was once a French Catholic school, and it still carries the sign "Collège des Frères." At Number 25, the fortresslike Urim School was set up as a girls' school in 1882.
