The Jerusalem YMCA

Opposite the King David Hotel.

A plot of land in the “West Nikephoria” section of Jerusalem was purchased from the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate with funds donated by the International Committee of the North American YMCA, the British National Council and a group of Jewish friends in Manchester, England. The cornerstone was laid in 1928 by Lord Plumer, the British high commissioner for Palestine.
