Jewish Jerusalem

A Jewish Oriented Tour of Jerusalem

mount of olivesWe 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“!.

hezekiah tunnelWe watch a 3D movie at the visitors center, and review the finds that may testify to the location of  King David’s Palace , and King David’s Tomb   .

We then explore the water system of Biblical Jerusalem  by walking through the 533 m wet and dark “Hezekiah’s Tunnel” , or along the  dry “Canaanite Tunnel, all the way to the Pool of Siloam  .

southern wallWe 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 visit to the  Western Wall    itself we head up to the Jewish Quarter .

temple modelAfter 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.
