The Wolfson Mall is a charming shopping center that’s been serving the Jerusalem community for over 30 years. It offers a supermarket, a pharmacy and a wide range of high-quality shops and services. Located on the second floor of The Shalom Mayer Center on Diskin Street in Jerusalem, it is easily accessible by public transportation or car and provides free covered parking.
This month, we’re featuring two of the businesses that offer their services at Wolfson: Access Credit Ltd. and Ina’s Studio.
Access Credit: Changing the Way You Move Your Money
In today’s world—with its increasingly demanding global economy—financial services are moving towards automation and digital interfacing. Customer-service orientated currency-exchange company Access Credit maintains a time-honored personal approach.
Handling most major currencies, Access Credit specializes in fund transfer services—including cash checking, currency exchange, direct deposits, and domestic and international wire transfers. The Company has held a license from the Israeli Ministry of Finance since 2005 and operates nine branches in the greater Jerusalem region.
“While money makes the world go round, our job is to make our clients’ money go round the world safely, swiftly and as affordably as possible,” says Access Credit CEO and founder, Yossi Shonkopf who has an extensive background in banking. “We provide each client with the most relevant, convenient and reliable options and solutions.”
Access Credit maintains long-standing relationships with international banking entity. By performing transactions in bulk through dealing rooms of major banks, the Company is able to pass on significant savings to clients, including lower fees and some of the best conversion rates.
“In a simple currency exchange, most people are naturally anxious and expect to be ripped off, even if the exchange is happening in front of them, with just a glass wall separating them from the money changer. International wire transfers cause even greater unease since there’s no observation deck to the inner workings,” adds Shonkopf, “Which is why we like to establish a relationship with our clients, provide them with the highest possible service and consistently reaffirm their trust in us.”
Access Credit also offers clients peripheral services such as currency exchange recommendations, making payments on clients’ behalf, and assisting in completing government documentation.

Tailored to Perfection
Finding the right outfit for an event can be a serious challenge in the days of mass-produced clothing, especially for people whose body type doesn’t match the standard. Even if you manage to find an item that is flattering, it won’t have the full effect if it doesn’t fit you just right—and then there’s the possibility that you’ll show up at event in your new outfit only to discover that someone else there is wearing the same one!
If you want to avoid these problems, you have two options. You can buy an item from a store and have it adjusted, or you can have a custom-made dress or suit sewn specifically for you. Ina’s studio at Wolfson Center offers both of these services and more.
Ina is an experienced tailor and fashion designer with training from a high-end textile academy and additional specialization in the production and design of modern women’s clothing. She opened a shop in Rehavia in 2000, and in 2018 moved to the Wolfson Center. Ina can sew you an outfit from scratch that is tailored to your specific measurements, body type and personal style. Ina’s clients receive a one-of-a-kind, high-quality, flattering and fashionable outfit, and benefit from Ina’s expert advice on looking their best on their special day. Bring the whole family and make sure you all stand out thanks to Ina’s unique creations.
Ina’s studio also offers a tailoring service for adjusting and repairing all types of clothing for both men and women. You don’t have to throw out that beloved dress or jacket that’s torn or falling apart; just bring it to Ina.
High-quality clothing requires high-quality care, and machine-washing can take its toll. At Ina’s studio, you can have your favorite outfits professionally dry-cleaned and ironed, so you can keep them looking and feeling as good as new, and continue enjoying them for many years to come.
