The changing face of Jerusalem

The face of some of Jerusalem’s most historic neighborhoods is changing. Recently, I ventured into the Bukharan Quarter for the first time in several months. Half of the market area is now a construction zone, with some of the beautiful old, late-19th century buildings bordering Yehezkel Street demolished to make way for yet another complex of luxury apartments.

But the faces of Israelis living in the Bukharan Quarter haven’t changed much.
