Jerusalem Jewish Heritage Private Tour From Tel Aviv
"We’ll start our tour at the Western Wall – “Kotel” as it is called in Hebrew. Visitors who stand at the Western Wall most often have a sense of not only the rushing presence of the “now-and here” but also of all those who for centuries streamed to this the most sacred place to the Jewish people. Two thousand years ago it was a part of the most magnificent building Jerusalem had ever seen – The Temple. We’ll further proceed to the Jewish Quarter where plenty of religious and historical sites of worldwide importance are actually “squeezed” together. We’ll walk through The Cardo which had been Jerusalem's main street 1500 years ago and is now one of the most interesting sites in the Jewish Quarter. And we’ll visit “Hurva” (“Destructed”) Synagogue which was the largest building in the Jewish Quarter prior to its destruction during Israel's War of Independence. For decades only a lone arch remained as symbol of the Quarter’s destruction.We’ll descend the Herodian Quarter
