What a day. They just keep getting better and better. We started the day with a VIP tour of the Western Wall Tunnels. Words cannot describe the experience we had as we explored the excavations underneath the Western Wall. Hidden layers of the Wall are revealed underground. The walls tell the story of ancient Jerusalem and of generations of longing for it.
We all spent a few special private moments praying at the Western Wall and then spent time visiting the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.
We then went to the City of David. When we thought we had seen it all, the history, the archaeology, the excavations and the site once again blew us away. The tour of the City of David began with a breathtaking observation point overlooking Biblical Jerusalem that sends visitors 3,800 years back in time to the days of Abraham, when the first foundations of the city were laid. As one moves through the site, one comes in contact with archaeological excavations and thrilling biblical finds that span thousands of years of history including both First and Second Temple Jerusalem.
We will now go to the Western Wall to greet the Sabbath and then have a Sabbath dinner at the hotel.
Each day just keeps getting better!!
