A Jewish Oriented Tour of Jerusalem
We start the day with a panoramic view from the Mount of Olives Viewpoint , and perhaps make a “shehecheyanu” blessing. Viewing the old city, we try to assess Jerusalem in the First Temple period and the Second Temple Period.
We then head to the City of David , “Where it all began“!.
We can also walk along the newly opened Herodian drainage channel (more then 500 m long!), which ends right in front of the Western Wall , in the complex of the Southern Wall Archaeological Park , which includes also Davidson Center .
After a lunch break we explore the Jewish Quarter sites such as the Temple Institute ; the Temle model at Aish Hatorah Yeshivah ; the Cardo ; the Hurva Synagogue ; the unique Karaite Synagogue and Talith Workshop ; the Biblical era “Broad Wall” ; the Herodian Quarter ; the Burnt House ; the model of First Temple Jerusalem (Ariel Center ), and the exhibition on the fall of the Jewish Quarter in 1948 (“Alone on the Walls” ).
We could also sign up for the tour of the Western Wall tunnels , including the great new attractions of the Virtual Tour of the Second Temple ; Visit King David’s Tomb Mark on Mount Zion as well as the President’s Room ; walk along Mea Sheaim , or drive to the western part of the city, to tour the Israel Museum , visit Herzl Museum and Mt. Herzl , or tour the Holocaust National Memorial at Yad Vashem .
