After enjoying our Israeli breakfast, enjoy the Ramparts Walk of Jerusalem for a unique perspective of the city. We will walk through the Jewish Quarter and can visit the stores along the Cardo, a typical Roman street built in the 6th century, and stop at the four Sepharadic synagogues restored after the 1967 war. We will then stand at the Western Wall, the most holy site, as for centuries people have been going there to bewail the loss of the temple in 70AD. The Wall is not part of the temple itself, rather a continuation of Herod the Great's retaining structure that holds in the arches known as Solomon's stables (the huge dressed stones at its bottom date from that time), but this has not stopped its Sanctification and the practice of writing prayers on pieces of paper that are placed in cracks in the wall in the belief that God will take more heed of them. Descend through the many layers of Jerusalem’s past at the time of the Temple, we will head through the Western Wall Tunnels. Inside, we’ll view the most interesting model shows depicting the different dwelling periods and history of the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Stand on the site believed to be the nearest spot to the "Holy of Holies". Shabbat dinner at the hotel.
