Tour map

This 2-hour walking experience covers:

  • The Jewish Quarter
  • The Hurva Synagogue 
  • Different aspects/movements on Judaism
  • The 4 Sepharadic synagogues
  • The Wailing Wall
  • External characteristics of the Jewish Orthodox
  • Day of Rest – whose great idea was that?

...and much more!

The Jewish people introduced to the world the idea of the weekend and there is no better place than in the Holy City of Jerusalem to experience a real Shabbat.

Join us for this unique chance to explore the various aspects of traditional Judaism. We will guide you through the Jewish Quarter during the golden hours before Shabbat begins and visit the Western Wall as hundreds of people arrive to begin their sincere and powerful Shabbat prayers. 

Unfortunately, this tour is not wheelchair accessible
