Old and New Jerusalem

Description

We take in the panoramic views of Jerusalem from the top of the Mount of Scopus then travel down the mount passing the Biblical Garden of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations and Kidron Valley that holds monumental Jewish tombs. In the Jewish Quarter, we see the Cardo; the Byzantine-era main street of Jerusalem. We stop at the sacred Western Wall to place a prayer note between the ancient stones of the wall. The tour follows part of the Via Dolorosa to the stunning Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Here we see the site of Christ’s crucifixion and his burial tomb. After a lunch break and walk through the Old City bazaar we travel to new Jerusalem. Driving through the modern city we reach Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum. The museum’s exhibits include authentic artifacts, original documents, photos and video testimonials of Holocaust survivors.

Yad Vashem (Hill of Remembrance)

The name of Yad Vashem, «a place and a name» comes from Book of Isaiah: «Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off»

National Memorial Hall

The National Memorial Hall for Israel's Fallen is a national memorial for all soldiers who gave their lives establishing and defending the State of Israel

Jerusalem

Jerusalem is the holy city of three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Western Wall

The Western Wall is part of the ancient wall around the western slope of the Temple Mount in the Old City that survived the destruction of the Second Temple. The greatest shrine of Judaism outside the Temple Mount itself, it has for centuries been a symbol of faith and hope for many generations of Jews, a place of pilgrimage and prayer.

Gethsemane

Gethsemane is a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. In Christianity, the Garden of Gethsemane is traditionally revered as the place where Jesus prayed on the night of his arrest before his crucifixion.

Cardo Street

The Cardo was the main street in Ancient Roman cities, running from north to south and lined with a row of columns on each side.

In the northern section of the Cardo, the bazaar built by the Crusaders in the 12th century was uncovered and restored to its function as a shopping area.
