Givat Oranim

Shai Agnon Boulevard, Givat Oranim

Givat Oranim (Hebrew: גבעת אורנים‎) is a neighborhood in southwestern Jerusalem, Israel, bordered by Katamon, Rassco, San Simon and Kiryat Shmuel.[1]

Givat Oranim was established after 1948. The area played an important part in the battle for the San Simon monastery during Israel's War of Independence. It is populated by a mix of national religious and secular Jews.[2] Large-scale building in 1991 included a project of 78 housing units combining high rise buildings and townhouses.[3]

In this neighborhood there was an attempt to assassinate the left-wing activist, Zeev Sternhell, by putting a bomb on his apartment door.[4]
