Why a Visit to Jerusalem Must be on Your Travel List

Jerusalem is a holy city for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Anyonethat has a deep interest in the culture, religion, and history of the region must make this incredible journey to Israel.HiringJewish Israel toursas an escort while traveling throughout the country is sure to provide peace of mind and make the best use of your time.

While touring Jerusalem, be sure to visit the Temple Mount complex, known in Hebrew as HarHaBayit (Mount of the House of God), the place where the 1st and 2nd Jewish Temples stood. Place your prayer notes inside the crevices of the Western Wall which is holy to Judaism. Tour the Rabbinical Tunnel: this underground tunnel exposes the full length of the Western Wall. See the massiveness of this gigantic structure.

The Arab shukis situated in the Christian and Muslim Quarters of Jerusalem’s walled old city. It is a colorful market and attracts a varied crowd of people: Jews on their way to services at the Western Wall and Christian touring the Old City and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.It is probably one of the best places in Israel to purchase authentic mementos for your trip. You can also get incredible deals if you can bargain with the lively shopkeepers. Don’t worry, this is a very common practice.

Jerusalem has the world’s largest Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem which marks the memory of millions of Jews who were killed during the World War II. It is expanded in an area of 45-acre complex and houses an historical museum, art exhibitions, synagogue, library, commemorative sites and more. It is Israel’s second most-visited site after the Western Wall. You can also visit the museum to know the real stories behind the Holocaust.

Another reason to visit the city of Jerusalem in Israel is to experience its amazing food. The culinary landscape is made up of the cuisines of countless immigrants who have made Jerusalem their home. Grab a falafel or shawarma to experience the street food or grab a seat in one of the chef-driven fine dining establishments to taste delicious and mouthwatering dishes.

Our synagogue has enjoyed three great tours of Israel during the past four years under the leadership of ITAS. They provided a safe, well-planned and exciting tour each time. When we go, we go with ITAS.

This tour was exceptional. I have been to Israel before but did not have the experiences I had on this tour. I enjoyed everything and Dan, our tour guide, was wonderful.

Sheldon Steiner, Jewish Heritage Tour
Everything was amazing, can’t say enough about our experience. Danni, our tour guide, made it the best trip we’ve ever had on a bus tour. Israel is amazingly beautiful and made us very proud of our Jewish heritage.
Ruth & Alan Press
Your tour and your guides were beyond expectation. A well coordinated trip from start to finish. We gave you some (unexpected requests) a bat mitzvah at the Wall and two couples renewing their vows in the beautiful gardens of Israel. You handled each with the professionalism that we expected, and we all love every minute of it.
Ellen & Stan Hulkower, Bar Mitzvah Family Tour
This was our first guided tour and it was set a very high standard for any tours I book in the future.
