The 15-year-old, who was attacked on the corner of Neviim and Kheil Hahandasa streets, was rushed to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center with knife wounds to his chest and back.
The Arab assailant tried to flee but was shot dead by police.
The attack took place hours after two ultra-Orthodox Jewish men were killed and two others were wounded in a similar incident in the capital.
The two men were identified as Nehemia Lavi, 41, of Jerusalem and Aharon Bennett, 21, of Beitar Illit. Bennett's wife, 22, is in serious condition and their son, 2, suffered light wounds.
The Bennetts and their two children were on their way to the Western Wall when they were attacked. According to witnesses, Lavi was attacked when he tried to help the family. The second child, a few months old, wasn't hurt.
Due to the security situation, access to the Old City in Jerusalem has been limited to residents of the area, local business owners, students who attend school in the area, Israeli citizens and tourists.
On Thursday, an Israeli couple, Naama and Eitam Henkin, were shot dead in their car while four of their children were sitting in the back in the West Bank. Israeli troops have been combing the Nablus area for the attackers.
