What to expect

As we stand above the Jewish cemetery on Mount of Olives we see the Old City and the Temple Mount where the Solomon’s Temple, destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, and the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE once stood.

Below us the garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations in the Kidron Valley with its ancient Jewish burial tombs Entering the Old City through the Zion Gate we pass the Armenian Quarter on our way to the Jewish Quarter and the fifteen hundred year old Byzantine Cardo partially destroyed and unused during the Muslim conquest. 

We stop at the Kotel, the Western Wall, where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Built by King Herod it was a supporting wall enclosing the enlarged Temple Mount area. The Via Dolorosa, also known as the Way of the Cross, is the route many pilgrims follow on their way to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the church was built over the place believed to be the location of the crucifixion of Jesus and the burial tomb.

We exit the Old City via the market and the Jaffa Gate for a short tour of the new city. A visit to Yad VaShem, the World Holocaust remembrance center, reveals personal stories, artifacts and photographs documenting the discrimination, persecution and finally the annihilation of the Jewish communities of Europe.
