Mount of Olives
Associated with many major events in the life of Jesus, including his arrest, the Mount of Olives serves as a rich area for Christian worship and pilgrimage. This is also the location of Dominus Flevit Church, Church of Mary Magdalene, Church of All Nations, Garden of Gethsemane, and the Dome of Ascension. Visit the seven holy sites and churches located on the mountain and look out on a spectacular view of Jerusalem, which includes the Kidron Valley and Mount Zion. The Mount of Olives also contains a large Jewish burial plot.
Last Supper Room
Visit the site of the Last Supper, where Jesus dined with his disciples on the night before his arrest. Situated above the Tomb of King David, this long hall is a perfect place for group or individual worship. The rooftop here offers a panoramic view of the Old City of Jerusalem.
The Wailing Wall
Here stands the remnant of the ancient Jewish Temple. People come from all over the world to pray at the wall and feel its strong spiritual presence. Write down your greatest wish and place it in the wall cracks, following the tradition of thousands of years and millions of Jews.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre
The last stop on the Via Dolorosa, this church, a prime example of medieval architecture, is the site of Jesus’ tomb as well as his crucifixion. Here you can worship at the Rock of Cavalry and the Stone of the Anointing and in the Catholic and Greek Orthodox chapels.
Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum
Tour Jerusalem’s international center for the documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust. Highlights include the Hall of Names, a memorial to individual victims, and “The World that Was” which documents pre-war European Jewry.
