From Tel Aviv: Take the sherut taxi from Tel Aviv to the last stop, Zion Square. Don’t bother to put on your backpack - we’re ten steps away. From the Jerusalem Central Bus Station:Take bus number 6 or 20 to Zion Square.By car: Follow the directions from our map. Parking is available on HaRav Kuk Street. It’s expensive if you come in the morning (ask for a day permit), cheap after 14:00, and free after 21:00 and on weekends.
