In the afternoon, you traverse the rooftops of the Jewish Quarter and visit the Old Yishuv Museum.

Enjoy a treasured day of leisure by partaking in a morning service or strolling through the streets of the serene city to view the various quarters and ancient ramparts. The following day, the family embraces the past on an archeological dig at Emek Tzurim. Search for pottery or historical coins dating back to the era of the Second Temple. Meet with combat soldiers serving in the Israeli Defense Force before touring the serene streets of the Yemin Moshe neighborhood.

Wake up early to enjoy the morning service in which your children undergo their B’nai Mitzvah in accordance with your family’s traditions. Celebrate at the Temple Mount’s Southern Wall. In the afternoon, you visit the Clore Garden of Science for an introduction into the country’s advancements in the field. Travel to a vineyard outside of the city specializing in grape juice.
