Jerusalem Moments - Hamamm al-Ayn and Me

2009 / Israel / 8min

The Hammam al-Ein, located in the Old City of Jerusalem was built by the Mamluk ruler, Saif Al-Din Al-Nasiry, circa 1336. What is left of this hammam (bathhouse) is the room that was used to heat the water and store commodities. Recently, the settler organization Ateret Cohanim built a synagogue beside the internal walls of the hammam. The construction is upsetting the delicate relationship between the Islamic Waqf and Israel, and the daily routines of the Muslim residents living nearby
