The Itamar spring is a part of the objects of interest on the Jerusalem path. This spring was the primary spring of the village of Al Walaja. Village dwellers named it Ein Balad, the village's primary water source in Arabic. The Name Itamar commemorates the Name of Itamar Doron, Hasid of Breslav, murdered by Hamas terrorists in 1998. The murderers fled the scene in Itamar's car. They were caught, tried and imprisoned, but one of them escaped several times until he was eliminated in 2001. Many debates and demonstrations against the exclusion of women were held near the spring. There was a time when religious men took ownership of the springs of Jerusalem and expelled women to use the springs as a kind of mikvah. Finally, the issue reached the Knesset, and the Minister of Internal Security decided to send a permanent police patrol.
