Tel Arza

Tel Arza (Hebrew: תל ארזה‎) is a Hareidi neighborhood in northern Jerusalem. It is bordered by Ezrat Torah on the north, Shikun Chabad on the west, the Bukharim quarter on the south, and Sanhedria on the east.

Tel Arza was established in 1931, as part of the expansion experienced in the Old Yishuv while recovering from the 1929 Palestine riots.

Its name is taken from the Mishna,[1] where it is described as a place where Jews were murdered.
