שכונת אבן ישראל
שכונת אבן ישראל נבנתה בשנת 1873, כשכונה השישית בירושלים מחוץ לעיר העתיקה, כיוזמה פרטית של תושבים ברובע היהודי. שמה של השכונה נובע ממספר מקימיה: חמישים ושלושה. אבן בגימטרייה שווה 53. השכונה נבנתה בשיטת החומה והשערים כמקום מבוצר. סביב חצר מרכזית שפונים אליה פתחי הדירות. בכל קצה הוצב שער כניסה שנסגר בלילה ובשעת צרה.

Built in 1873 as the sixth Jewish neighborhood outside the Old City at a private initiative of 53 residents of the Old City Jewish Quarter. The name is derived from the number of the founders. In the Hebrew alphanumeric code of assigning a numerical value to each letter, the Hebrew Even (stone) equals 53. Built as a fortified quarter with walls and a central courtyard, and a gate on each end, that could be locked.
