Lifta is an abandoned village on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Built on a slope that descends to Nahal Soreq, it is 725 meters above sea level, and contains remains of an Arab village from the 16th century. According to a 1931 census, it had a population of 1,844 residents living in 410 homes. Today, only about 55 buildings remain, and they are in danger of demolition, vandalism, and natural disasters.
