Zeidy in Har Nof

Rabbi Nachman and Miriam Zakon

Come zoom with Zeidy Zakon and visit places you’ve never seen before in the greatest city on earth — Yerushalayim!

Sometimes it’s hard to find your house, Zeidy.

All the buildings in Har Nof look so alike.

Yeah, it’s a good thing people in Eretz Yisrael speak English. Everyone we met kept telling us the same thing... go there, yashar yashar (straight ahead).

Well, shalom, shalom. I’m so happy you finally found me. Sit down and have some of Bubby’s super-duper hamantaschen and shoko (chocolate milk).

Ummm, yummmm, that was great.

Zeidy, why is this neighborhood called Har Nof ?

Well, “har” means mountain, and you can see the neighborhood is built on a high mountain.

What about “nof”? What does that mean?

Nof” means view or scenery. So finish up and come with me, I’ll show you the “har” and the “nof.”
