The barbershop on Jaffa corner is a small old business that has existed for more than 60 years.
The owner of the barbershop is Abraham, an elderly man who immigrated to Israel as a young man from Iran to Israel in the 1950s with his wife and brother, and later settled in the Mamilla neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Abraham has a life story that relates to the history of Jerusalem and the city center in particular, and serves as evidence of the city in the days of the Six-Day War.
His stories are full of experiences that relate to identity and immigration.
At first he moved with his wife to one of the abandoned houses in the Mamilla area.
It was the Austerity Days in Israel, and on holidays and Shabbat, in an improvised synagogue in one of the abandoned houses, they would eat imported egg powder because there was no food available.
Initially working for a barber in the Mahane Yehuda Market and later in Rehavia neighborhood, he finally got a permanent job at the barbershop on Jaffa Street, and after a few years he became its owner.
