What people are saying:

[Former residence of tanner Simon] is located in an alley in the old city of Jaffa (Tel Aviv). Jaffa is an ancient port mentioned in the Bible. It has been very prosperous since ancient times, and its existence history can be traced back to the eighteenth century BC. The "Bible" records that the messenger of Gurney from Rome visited Peter, a guest of Simon, a tanner in Jaffa. Peter told the visitors the teachings of Jesus. It is said that the spread of the gospel of Jesus was based on this opportunity. Therefore, many pilgrims still visit here today.
