Heritage House is hands down the best place to stay if you’re in the Old City for Shabbat. I spent the high holidays there and I cannot express how amazing it was! The madrichim/madrichot are all such incredible people and I always have the best time whenever I stay there.
The Heritage House is an awesome place! Its great to know that there is always someplace Jewish you can go to during the week or Shabbat.
Any time I think of visiting Jerusalem, I know I have a place to stay. It’s a pleasure to stay at the Heritage House because you meet interesting people who can teach you something about Judaism, faith, and traditions – or they can point you in the right direction for whatever spiritual inquiries you may have. I felt so welcomed at both the Shabbat meals I was matched for – it is an experience I’ll never forget, and one that I hope to repeat! Thank you Heritage House!
Heritage House, well what can I say… my experience was of a place where I could be with my experiences. A space which provided a certain security, a base from which to journey from. I never fathomed that it would become so close to my heart; this haven in the middle of the Old City.
Thank you Heritage House!!
I had an amazing time at the Heritage house. The people there were very welcoming and the whole atmosphere was very warm. Havdala after shabbat was very special with people coming together that were jewish from all different parts of the world to wish everyone a good week. I look forward to visiting again sometime when I am in the holy land. B’shalom,
Many Thanks to the Heritage House. Over the course of my year in Israel, you have become a home for me. I never cease to have moving experiences and I always earn challenging lessons from them. The Heritage House madrichot are beautiful souls and Chaya Weisberg couldn’t be better suited to be the house “mother”. I cannot thank you enough.

Being on a gap year in Israel can get hard sometimes. Heritage House truly provides an amazing and inspiring atmosphere that will always uplift anyone’s spirit! Thank you so much!!
Go Heritage House!!! What an amazing place and what an amazing manager! Chaya Weisberg, you are the best! Thanks for making my stay there so wonderful!!!
There is so much to say about the Heritage House, and to sum it up in a paragraph just won’t do, but I will try. When I had no where to stay for my extra week in Israel, the Heritage house opened their doors for me and welcomed me with open arms and warm hearts. I felt an instant connection with the Madrichot or house counselors as well as Chaya the wonderful house mother; the fellow guests, the day I walked in. The comfy environment, and friendly atmosphere on top of the great living commodities (including internet) made me feel at home. The experiences I had staying at the Heritage house were the most inspiring encounters that have happened to me thus far. I woke up bright and early to attend the 9 AM Aish essential classes, and roamed around the hustling and blissful streets of the Old City. If it wasn’t for the Heritage house I would not have been able to fully grasp the pure essence of Judaism, and the Madrichot did just that. I stayed for a Shabbat at the Heritage House as well, and I had an unforgettable experience. We were set up for meals with different families who live in the Old City. The Shabbat was one of the most inspiring Shabbats I have ever had. From praying at the Kotel together, to experiencing an Israeli Shabbat, american-israeli Shabbat, and then a Heritage family Shabbat, where we made sushi and sang and drummed the Bongo’s. I know when I go back to Israel, I would stay at the Heritage for my heart lies in that warm haven of a house!
Heritage House- you are an integral part in the picture of Jerusalem, and the picture becomes complete because of your existence. Chaya,thank you so much for the good mood, for the confidence and all the conversations, for the warm bed, hot coffe and safety. I stayed in the best place, met the best people,and had the privilege to spend a real Shabbat near the Kotel.
