Four years ago, the Jerusalem Municipality hired experts at a Haifa-based firm to assess the sustainability of the shuk in the face of economic and business changes in the city center. The results of the evaluation were crystal clear: Mahaneh Yehuda, which over the last few years has become a must-see on any tourist circuit, with tours booked from around the world, was reaching the point of economic and managerial collapse.

The report, which cost the city NIS 400,000, was not made public.
