Safra Square is Jerusalem''s city hall public square named after Jacob and Esther Safra, parents of Edmond J. Safra, a Jewish philanthropist who contributed generously to the renovation of downtown Jerusalem. Kikar Safra, as it is known in Hebrew, is built on a triangular-shaped plot near the eastern end of Jaffa Road, bounded on the east by Shivtei Yisrael ("Tribes of Israel") street and forming a triangular intersection across from Tzahal Square and the walls of Jerusalem''s Old City. The Russian Compound lies to the north. Some of the historic buildings of the Russian Compound have been restored and incorporated into the municipal complex. The Compound''s historic gate was moved to the north of its original location. Jerusalem''s city hall, both the new complex and the former building, is close to the former 1949 armistice line that divided Jerusalem between Israeli and Jordanian control until 1967. Its location across from the Old City symbolizes the efforts of the municipal government to serve all residents of Jerusalem, east and west.
