About the project

The Rachel Yanai’t Ben-Zvi Youth Center for Jerusalem Studies provides educational programs on the history of Jerusalem in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter.The center, which is named for the wife of Israel’s second president, Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, and is operated by Yad Ben-Zvi, attracts approximately 100,000 visitors each year, who participate in tours, seminars and other activities. In 1984, the Jerusalem Foundation established the center’s Dorot Foundation Youth Wing by converting old stables to study and activity rooms equipped with models, maps, photograph displays and video equipment, a reading room and a reference library. In 1985, the center moved to a nearby location and its former facility became home to the Ari’el Center for Jerusalem in the First Temple Period, which is under the center’s auspices.
