30 yeshiva students, members of the Bnei Akiva movement, move into the Batei Mahase complex in the Jewish quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. In doing so, they become the first Jews residing in the Old City since the War of Independence. The settlers affix a mezuzah at the entrance to the complex, dance and sing. Finally, they study together.
