Jerusalem Day Tour: Explore Your Jewish Heritage

Finding Yourself in the Old City

Jerusalem Day Tour

Temple Mount and Mount of Olives

For two thousand years our ancestors said, ‘Next year in Jerusalem!’ Today this dream is a reality. The center of Jewish history is open and waiting for you. Here you will see the roots of the Jewish past come alive. The day starts with a scenic overlook of the city. From there you’ll go back 3000 years to the City of David. You will see where David’s palace once stood, and walk in king Hezekiah’s underground water system. In the Old City you will walk in the footsteps of prophets and priests, generals and rebels.

There will be sites of IDF defeat and also its greatest triumph. You will see the thread of Jewish history woven through the hard stone of Jerusalem.
