Atlit Museum of Clandestine Immigration

This museum captures the lives of “illegal immigrants” to Palestine during the British Mandate. Jews who fled from Nazi persecution and survived the Holocaust found themselves incarcerated by the British in camps similar to those fled in Europe.

Acco Subterranean Crusader Halls

In the heart of the city of Akko, what was once street level is now situated eight meters below the ground. A walk through the passages of the 700-year-old Knights Hospitaller headquarters allows you to experience the Crusader city, once a strategic fortress.

Rosh Hanikra Grottos & Cable Car

Formed over a period of thousands of years from waves hitting the soft chalk rock on Israel’s coast, the beautiful grottoes of Rosh Hanikra are truly a wonder. Ride via cable car from the mountain top down to sea level to walk within its gorgeous walls.

Qasr Al Yahud Jordan River Crossing

We’ll stop at the point where the Nation of Israel crossed the Jordan River and entered the Land of Israel after their 40 years of wandering in the desert. This is also the site of Elijah the Prophets ascension to heaven in a fiery chariot after he and Elisha crossed the Jordan.

Dead Sea Float Experience – time permitting

JERUSALEM’S OLD CITY – THE ETERNAL CAPITAL

Western Wall Tunnels

These famous underground tunnels contain remnants of entire rooms from the Second Temple period. At Warren’s Gate, you’ll stand just a few feet away from where the Holy Ark stood, and feel the yearning of the Jewish people for the Temple for thousands of years.

Wohl Archaeological Museum

In 1967, six Herodian-era houses located beneath the Jewish Quarter were excavated. This amazing museum was built to tell the story of the homes and to exhibit the remains that were found. A private ritual bath, a palatial mansion and a mosaic floor are on display here.

Katros House – The Burnt House

Burnt to the ground during the Roman destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E., excavations have uncovered remnants of the lives of the priestly Katros family, who lived during the Second Temple. A film tells the story of the great destruction in a dramatic reproduction.

The Temple Institute

This organization is dedicated to every aspect of the Temple in Jerusalem. After many years of effort and toil, the three most important and central vessels of the Holy Temple have been reconstructed. Priestly garments, incense and musical instruments are also on display.

Friday Night Tour to the Western Wall

On the eve of Shabbat, Jerusalem transforms; stores shut down, and streets and alleyways fall silent, as all begin to anticipate the weekly Shabbat. Our 2000-year-old tour will pass through Jaffa gate and the Golden Menorah, and end at the Wall right as Shabbat begins.

Kfar Etzion Multimedia

A kibbutz located in southern Judea, Kfar Etzion is a monument to Israeli resilience. Visitors are welcomed into a museum that documents its history and retells the story of the bitter fall of the kibbutz in 1948 and its rebirth after it was captured from Jordan in 1967.

Rachel’s Tomb

The matriarch Rachel is a symbol of hope and prayer for the Jewish people, as she was childless for many years but ultimately became the mother of the Jewish people. Tradition has it that Rachel cried for the Jewish people as they passed her tomb on their way to exile.

Overnight: The David Citadel Hotel, Jerusalem
