Visiting Bethlehem and Herodian from Jerusalem

by Andrew_W_K

Is it possible to take a taxi to Bethlehem and then go on to Herodian? The reason I ask is because I saw a documentary on TV recently where they implied that you couldn't do that because Herodian is under Jewish control whereas Bethlehem is under Palestinian control. Were they correct?

In principle, yes.

Herodion is south of Jerusalem. Bethlehem is also south of Jerusalem, but there is a border control between the two areas.

A Jerusalem taxi may be permitted to make this trip. If not it would mean returning first directly to Jerusalem, and then going out again to Herodion.

Ah, I see. It's not like going from England to Wales is it? ;)

>Is it possible to take a taxi to Bethlehem

From Jerusalem? The easy way is to take the local bus from the Arab bus station by Damascus Gate to the separation barrier checkpoint in Bethlehem. On the other side, get a local taxi. This can take you to all the sights in the town and around except Rachel's Tomb, which is cut off by the barrier.

John, the question really is having got to Bethlehem can I then take a taxi directly to Herodian or do I have to go back outside the separation wall?

Re: Visiting Bethlehem and Herodian from Jerusalem

by JohntheFinn

That's precisely what I did just over a year ago, Andrew. A taxi from the PA side of the wall took me to Herodion, Shepherds' Field, Milk Grotto, and Church of the Nativity, Jericho, Mar Saba Monastery, Monastery of St George of Koziba and sundry other points of interest, and next day to Qumran. He could not, however, go to Jerusalem where his brother lived as he had no permit to enter Israel proper.

I also took a local bus from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. Once in Bethlehem, many of the taxies wanted to take me on tours to several places.

Re: Visiting Bethlehem and Herodian from Jerusalem

by JohntheFinn

Yeah. The main thing is to get a good driver. Mine was excellent, spoke good English, didn't try to take me to a single souvenir shop. Got his contact info somewhere if anybody's interested. VTmail me.

It would be like going from England to Wales during the 13 hundreds before the war began.
Troubled peace.
But you can take organized tours from Jerusalem to Bethleham for a day.

Travel Tips for Jerusalem

Shabbat in Jerusalem

by unaS

Shabbat is the Jewish holy day. It begins approximately 1 hour before sundown on Friday and continues until about 1 + hour after sundown on Saturday.

In Jerusalem the Old City is open. You can certainly shop and eat there, visit the sites and forget Shabbat. You will need to walk or take a taxi to get there.

In the western part of the city most everything is closed. There are some restaurants open on Hillel and Agron streets. Hotels serve their visitors as usual, but even hotel shops are closed.

The Israel Museum is open on Shabbat, take a taxi to get there. The gift shop will probably be closed but I am not absolutely sure about that.

Taxi rates do increase on Shabbat, using the number 2 level of rates rather than the number 1 level as on weekdays. The peace and quiet of Shabbat

big breakfast

by jil_coleslaw

we woke up around 0730 everyday and left the hostel around 0900. one morning, we talked in the old town (well, actually we lived there) and found a bread shop. the good smell and home-liked environment made me hungry. we bought a bread/pastry with egg. it costs US$1.5/5 shekels. we (two girls) shared it and drunk a lot of water. that was the way we saved money.

Old Jerusalem - the Ancient Walled City

by Goner

Old Jerusalem is an ancient Holy City intrically woven with religions - the heart of the Holy Land. Three religions claim it as the gateway to Heaven.

There is so much to see here that it's overwhelming. A good map showing all the important sites is a must. There are winding streets and alleyways just waiting to be explored, AND with a guide or a good map you CAN SEE IT ALL.

At the time I was there, it was peaceful and lively. Everyone seemed to be living in peace and harmony - WHAT CAN'T IT STAY THAT WAY!! The Dome of the Rock is such a shiney gold it seems to be the only other color than the sand colored ancient walls, but the real color in Jerusalem is its people.

There are Ethiopian priests in flowing golden robes and headress -- they seem to float through the streets. There are all the Jewish sects; those from Europe with curls dangling from their caps, some with fur hats and long distinguished beards. There are the Greek Orthodox priests in their black robes with giant crosses hanging from their necks. Beudoin ladies with colorful headresses, Muslim ladies with their long dresses and head coverings, and Israelis in western style casual clothing.

Such diversity of people and customs I've never seen in any other country.

vitis The Church of Dominus...

by Wings2Fly

vitis The Church of Dominus Flexit - 'the Lord wept.' This church is on the slopes of the Mount of Olives facing the Temple Mount. The present church was built on the ruins of an ancient church and marks the spot where Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem which would be shortly destroyed. I experienced Yad Vashem, the Mount of Remembrance. Here in Jerusalem, seat of Jewish spirituality and learning is the memorial for the study and commemoration of the greatest tragedy in Jewish history, the Holocaust. Within the Children's Memorial Garden, an underground structure was built commemorating the one and a half million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. Three dimensional photos of children are exhibited. Five burning memorial candles a multiplied into an infinite number, symbolizing the souls of children who perished and whose names are heard in the background. 'Their death a fever of sorrow; their memories soft and warm.'
