|Romema is a located in north-west Jerusalem, close to the main western entrance to Jerusalem from the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway.
Romema was founded in 1921 near the site where the Turkish Army surrendered to General Allenby during World War I. The Allenby Memorial to British soldiers who fell in the fight for Palestine is at the highest point of the area.
Romema is home to the Jerusalem branch of the Magen David Adom ambulance service, which serves Jerusalem and the surrounding metropolitan area. The Jerusalem Central Bus Station is also in Romema, as are several large hotels such as the Jerusalem Gate Hotel, and the headquarters of Israel Television (IBA). The neighborhood has many synagogues and yeshivot.
Romema includes the former Jerusalem light industrial zone, which has been rezoned and redeveloped for residential use. The neighborhood has become increasingly ultra-orthodox in the last twenty years.
