King David’s Tomb
Possibly the tomb of the great Israelite King David, this site has been visited by pilgrims Jewish and Christian for centuries. It also served as a substitute prayer site when Jews were denied access to the Wailing Wall (1948 to 1967) while Jordan controlled the Old City.
The Wailing Wall
Stop at the Wailing Wall to say a prayer and leave a note in the cracks between the stones of the wall that supported the Temple Mount in ancient times. A symbol of exile and destruction, it is now a joyous location celebrating the Jewish return to reunified Jerusalem.
Davidson Center – Jerusalem Archeological Park
Learn about ancient Jerusalem with the help of state-of-the-art technology, including a virtual reconstruction of the Temple Mount and a film reenacting the pilgrim experience. See Roman-era shops and ritual baths that lined the street under the Temple Mount stairs.
Mount Herzl National Cemetery
A burial place for prominent Zionist figures such as Theodore Herzl, Golda Meir and Yitzhak Rabin, here you will also find an expansive military cemetery; one quite full for a country so young. The loss of the soldiers who fought for the land of Israel is palpable.
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.
