"Meah Shearim" means "a hundred-fold" or "a hundred gates." It is one of the oldest Jerusalem neighborhoods outside the walls of the old city, founded by devoutly orthodox Jews in the 19th century.
Many of Mea Shearim's residents reject modern technology, so residents resort to the printing house. On each block, white signs with black Hebrew letters invite neighbors to weddings, meetings, and announce the deaths of members of the community. The signs also inform residents of changes in the neighborhood and other social events.
