Architect: Conrad Schick, 1882-1889
Guided tours of a building that Teddy Kollek, the city’s former mayor, once called “the most beautiful house in Jerusalem.” It was designed and built by Conrad Schick for his own family, who lived there from 1882 to 1901. From an architectural standpoint, the style of the building is European with Middle Eastern motifs. Tabor House is currently owned by the Swedish Lutheran Church and serves as an academic institute for theology studies. The tours will be led by Tzipi Ron, an environmental activist and recipient of the Distinguished Citizen Award, and Israel Haran, a member of the Tabor House staff, and will include the intimate garden and the chapel.
- Entry to the house is contingent on presenting a Green Pass and wearing a mask.
- Carrying a weapon of any kind is not allowed in the compound.
