The exciting tour provides a rare look at the streets of Jerusalem and an understanding of the processes that led to the unification of the city.

Jerusalem Week in the Jewish Quarter offers a special tour, and a visit to the various attractions of the quarter, including:

  • A journey through 3,000 years of history within two hours – the amazing story of the Jewish Quarter that will uncover inspiring tales, hidden alleys, and much more.
  • The audio experience in the Davidson Center’s Archaeological Garden – A unique audio experience that you can access on your mobile device.

In the archaeological Garden, you’ll see remnants of Jerusalem from the Second Temple era: the Southern Wall of the Temple Mount, the remains of the Robinson Arch, the steps to the Huldah Gates, the Mikvah Tahara (cleansing baths) that were used by those who ascended the Mountain, the Herodian Street and more.
  • The Hurva synagogue, first built in 1700 by the Hasidim of Rabbi Yehuda, was burnt in 1720 and destroyed to the ground. It was rebuilt in 1864 and became a symbol of the renewed settlement in Palestine. The synagogue was destroyed for the second time in 1948 by the Jordanians, and its destruction meant no more Jewish presence in the city. In 1973, after the Jewish quarter had reunited with the State of Israel, a temporary commemorative arch was erected over the ruins of the synagogue, and the place became once again a symbol of the renewal of the Jewish quarter. After restoration and construction in 2006, the “Hurva” synagogue was completed.
  • Audiovisual Installation: Museum of the Burnt House (Katros House) -A magnificent structure discovered during the excavations of the” Upper City”. The name is given because it is a unique testament to the destruction and burning of Jerusalem by the Romans in the first century. The audiovisual installation depicts and illustrates life during the turbulent time, days before the destruction. The film is screened every 40 minutes, starting at 10:00 in Hebrew, English, Spanish, and French.

Museum on the Seam – A fascinating visit to the Social Museum of Contemporary Art

Yoram Reshef from the exhibition “Affected”at the On The Seam Museum (courtesy of On The Seam Museum PR).

On the Seam Museum is a unique boutique establishment featuring art from Israel and abroad, created by leading contemporary artists.

The museum discusses social, gender, ethnic and geographic issues, with an emphasis on what connects us one to the other.

The museum, housed in a beautiful neoclassical building, was built in 1932. Used as a military post during the years when Jerusalem was divided, the building would have been on the border between Israel and Jordan and would have been the only crossing between parts of the divided city.

The marks left by bombs and bullets can still be seen on the walls of the museum.

The museum is located five minutes’ walk from Mea Shearim (ultra-Orthodox neighborhood) and the Old City, offering spectacular views from its rooftop overlooking Jerusalem. You can sit in a special café on the museum’s roof and bask in the Jerusalem atmosphere while surrounded by art books.

Selected by CNN as “one of the ten best museums in Israel,” the museum presents changing art exhibitions, and these days you can see the “Affected” exhibition that captures the artistic mindset in times of plague. Created over the past two years, the exhibition touches on a range of issues that preoccupy us all: communication, consumerism, touch, space, body, change, and politics.
