Jewish Quarter Tour
The Jewish Quarter is both the oldest and newest part of Jerusalem’s Old City. On my Jewish Quarter Tour you’ll learn about the ancient history of the Jewish Quarter dating all the way back to King Hezekiah in the 10th century BCE! We’ll see the ancient ruins from the 1st and 2nd Temple times, visit the historic synagogues and experience the special atmosphere that exist only in the Jewish Quarter!
What you’ll see:
Go under the modern buildings of Today’s Jewish Quarter to see the ancient homes of the Kohanim who lived in Jerusalem during the time of the Second Temple.
Get a private tour of the exhibition of the vessels and garments made by the Temple Institute for use in the Third Temple.
Visit the historic Synagogues of Jerusalem’s Jewish quarter including the Churva, Ramban, Tzemach Tzedek and four Sephardic Synagogues. Learn about the pioneers who established Jewish life in Jerusalem throughout the ages.
When the Assyrians were coming to lay siege to King Hezekiah’s Jerusalem, he prepared for the battle by building a monumental wall around much of Today’s Jewish Quarter. We’ll visit a portion of this ancient wall.
