Bayit V'gan

Bayit V'gan (Bayit Vegan, Bait Vegan) was founded in 1921-1926 in the western part of the city as one of the six garden neighborhoods, by families wanting to establish a national religious neighborhood. Now this neighborhood is home to many ultra-Orthodox residents as well, with many fine yeshivot and other educational institutions including the Ariel Institutes, Netiv Meir, Kiryat HaNoar, and the Institute of Halachic Technology. In 1948, during the War of Independence, many battles were fought there which led to the liberation of the areas known today as Kiryat Yovel and Malcha. Located across from the world-renowned Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum and Shaarei Tzedek Hospital, today Bayit Vegan is home to 15,000 residents. The new homes that have constructed recently are built down the mountain, creating a terraced effect. The neighborhood houses the huge water reservoir that supplies water to the city of Jerusalem. The neighborhood has a mixed ultra-Orthodox and national religious population, more Israeli than Anglo.
