Into the Jewish Quarter Tour


  • Learn about what it means to be Jewish – religion, culture and traditions.
  • Understand the development of the Jewish community in the Old City of Jerusalem.
  • Explore the Jewish Quarter’s synagogues and historical sites.

Tour Overview:

The Jewish Quarter is the smallest of the four quarters in the Old City of Jerusalem. Nevertheless, it is full of interesting sites and stories. In this 2 hour tour, we’ll go deep into the Jewish Quarter, talk about its development and get to know the Jewish religion and some of its customs.

This tour is made for a crowd that is unfamiliar with the Jewish religion and customs.
