[Adjacent sign describes the architectural elements of the building]
A Site Documenting Architectural Elements From The Tatitha Kumi Building 1868-1980
The building was among the first to be constructed outside the Old City Walls. It was designed by the renowned Jerusalem architect and explorer Konrad Schick (1822-1901). "Talitha Kumi" is Aramaic for "Girl, Rise!"
Until the end of the First World War the building served as an orphanage and school run by the sisters of the Deaconessian order. Afterward it was used mainly as an office building.
The building stood approximately 50 meters north-west of this site. Its architectural qualities were unique, incorporating European academic styles with Eastern moves. This site illustrates a few of the architectural features of the building, including the original clock and engraved sign. The stone peace dove is the symbol of the Deaconessian order.
