In 1857, Yosef Rivlin founded a society called the Builders of Jerusalem. Six other men joined him and together the seven men built the first neighborhood outside the city walls - Nahalat Shiva( Estate of Seven).
Yemin Moshe: An early Jewish suburb of western Jerusalem, founded next to the original Jewish settlement outside the Old City, Mishkenot Sha'ananim. The brainchild of Yosef Rivlin and DavidYellin and funded by Sir Moses Montefiore, Yemin Moshe was envisioned as an artists colony. In fact, the first buildings were used as the site of a weaving factory, then a hospital.
The problem was that the area was easy prey for local marauders. Rivlin himself courageously moved into one of the houses as his permanent residence. His relatives inside the Old City were soafraid for his safety that they ran
out the main gate when it opened each morning to see if Rivlin was still alive!. Today Yemin Moshe is one of the most picturesque and treasured of Jerusalem's many neighborhoods.
