Montefiore Windmill in Jerusalem

The Montefiore Windmill, also knwon as the Jerusalem Windmill and Yemin Moshe Windmill, located in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mishkenot Sha'ananim, was the first structure constructed outside the Old City walls. Based on the vision of Sir Moses Montefiore, the neighborhood and the windmill were built to provide employment and housing for the Jewish residents of Jerusalem, who were suffering from over-crowded conditions within the Old City. The Montefiore Windmill was recently restored in a Netherlands workshop, and placed in its original location, adjacent to Yemin Moshe, Liberty Bell Park and the First Station compound.
