Neve Granot

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neve Granot is a neighborhood in Jerusalem located behind the Israel Museum, overlooking the Monastery of the Cross.

Neve Granot is named for Avraham Granot, a Zionist activist and signatory of the Israeli Declaration of Independence who went on to become head of the Jewish National Fund.[1] The Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies in Neve Granot built its new campus there, designed by Israeli architect Ada Carmi.[2]
