Jerusalem’s Armenian pottery

The Jewish Press presents the photo of an Armenian woman sitting in her studio and freshly painting a pot in the Old city of Jerusalem as today’s Photo of the Day.

One of the four quarters of Jerusalem’s Old City is the Armenian Quarter. It’s located between the Yafo and Zion gates.

Armenians have been in Jerusalem since the fourth century CE. Though many arrived only after the 1915 Armenian Genocide committed by Turkey.

The entire Armenian quarter consists of no more than around 1,000 people.

But there you can find genuine (Jerusalem-style) Armenian pottery and artwork, and even watch as it’s made.
