InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Jerusalem

Hello to all Americans in Jerusalem! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Jerusalem? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Jerusalem which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Jerusalem is a city of division and diversity. The popular pilgrim destination is a duocentric city known for its contested status, but also for its long history — first signs of settlement date back nearly six thousand years — and UNESCO World Heritage Site of the old city, its importance to three world religions, and much more! With the public transportation network consisting of various bus services and the Jerusalem Light Rail (JLR) line, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in , which are away from Jerusalem’s center.

Although Jerusalem has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Jerusalem, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
