I would like to know what the halachic boundaries of Jerusalem are today in terms of where one would be obligated in the mitzvot of Shushan Purim.

    It's the same as it's been for 3000 years. You can see parts of the original walls outside the modern "Old City" – Double AA Feb 19 at 16:56

  • Actually, (IMSMC?) modern scholars maintain that ir david would have been the older city extant at the time of Joshua, which I would think should mean that, according to those who hold that the principles of samuch and nireh only apply when the original city is reading on the 15th, should mean that, if ir david doesn't encompass any active Jewish communities, should mean even the har habayis should read on the 14th(?) – Loewian Feb 19 at 20:36
