Description:

The tour begins with a sweeping vista of Jerusalem, allowing participants to see laid out before them the hallowed monuments of ancient Jerusalem and the vibrant bustle of the modern city. You'll then embark on a walking tour of the Old City, including: 

 

 

  • Mount Zion, focal point of exilic Jewish yearning and resting place of King David
  • The Cardo, the remnant of the main thoroughfare of Roman Jerusalem, currently a ritzy shopping center
  • The Via Dolorosa, the "Sorrowful Way," the path of Jesus' last walk through Jerusalem between sentencing and crucifixion, with stops at each of the fourteen Stations of the Cross
  • The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the ancient and labyrinthine church built over the tomb of Jesus, split between monks of the various Catholic and Orthodox sects of the Christian faith
  • The Western Wall, or Kotel, the last remnant of the Second Temple, regarded as the holiest prayer site in the Jewish faith

 

 

In the afternoon, the group will visit Yad Vashem, the official state Holocaust museum, a harrowing, emotional but ultimately enlightening journey through the Nazi genocide of the Jews of Europe.

 

Yad Vashem is closed on Saturdays and Jewish holidays - should the tour take place then, the group will instead visit the Yemin Moshe, the first neighborhood built outside the city walls; Stroll through Mishkenot Sha'ananim and view the Montifiore windmill.

 

 

Tours of holy sites require modest dress: men should cover their heads at Jewish holy sites and uncover them at Christian holy sites; women should ensure that knees and shoulders are covered; no shorts are allowed for either gender.

 

Comfortable shoes and hat recommended.
