Ramat Eshkol Ramat Eshkol was the first Jewish neighborhood built in Jerusalem after the Six Day War
Ramat Eshkol was the first Jewish neighborhood built in Jerusalem after the Six Day War . The first residents moved into their homes in 1969.

The neighborhood is situated next to Ammunition Hill on the main road from Ramallah in the north to the Old City and eastern Jerusalem. This route was essential to the Arab capture and control of eastern Jerusalem between 1948 and 1967. The main road of the neighborhood, Levi Eshkol Boulevard, leads to the Hebrew University and Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus.

The neighborhood is named in memory of Levi Eshkol, Israel's Prime Minister at the time of the Six Day War. Street names honor battle sites in the Sinai: Tiran Straights, Mitleh Pass, Ofira, Nahal Zin, Paran, Etzion Geber, Red Sea, Hatzerot and Mevo Refidim.
