“Ohel Yitzhak (Isaac’s Tent) Hall, Western Wall Tunnels – Jerusalem

As part of archaeological excavations beneath the Ohel Yitzhak Synagogue, located at the edge of HaGai Street in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, an ancient vaulted hall was discovered, covered and filled with dirt (containing archaeological findings from different periods).

Shoham was hired to conduct the excavation and reinforcement work for the preservation of the ancient structure and the building above it.

– Built steel scaffolding on small-diameter posts
– Conducted excavation works
– Parallel reinforcement of the arches and ceiling using anchors and permanent steel construction.

Today, the hall serves as a venue for lectures and various events.

For the Western Wall Heritage Foundation.
