It has become a popular tradition for visitors to walk around the Nachlaot neighbourhood during the 8th night of Chanukkah. The cozy atmosphere attracts many people and what they usually do is taking pictures. So did I and here is the result:
Although the haredi part of Nachlaot is, more or less, closed for visitors, one Chassid (I think of American origin) wanted to involve all Jewish visitors in his lighting of his Menorah. I think that more Chassidim should follow suit and not just close down.
Why do the Haredim make it almost impossible for visitors ? Actually many visitors don’t behave in a respectful way and just stagger around and make noise. This doesn’t only bother the haredi population but you can find signs all over Nachlaot asking visitors to show more respect to all residents.
