Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem
This tour is all about fun, fun for the Bar Mitzvah boy and fun for his family.
We will start our morning with a beautiful view over the Wailing Wall from the Jewish quarter. After a spiritual lecturer about the site we are about to visit and its significance to the Jewish people. We will slowly descent to theWailing Wall. At this part of the way we will be escorted by 2 drummers and a shofar player dressed in white.
We will have our service at the Wailing Wall, where the Bar mitzvah boy will read the Parasha. There are 2 options to do the service:
1) At the main traditional yard where woman are separated from men (orthodox site).
2) The southern edge of the Wailing Wall (near the Robinson arch) where all the family can have the service together (conservative site).
We then continue with our fun tour in Jerusalem.
Tour in the Wailing Wall tunnels (requires booking 2 months in advance).
We will have lunch in local restaurant.
Then we will participate in an archaeological experience – we will sort out ancient remains from soil that was brought from the temple mount (who knows maybe we will find some of the lost gold).
Then will go for a tour in the City of David. The journey quickly heads underground to some of the newest archaeological excavations at the site. The underground tour finally ends at the Gihon Spring, there we’ll take out flashlights and wade through the spring in King Hezekiah’s 2,700 year old water tunnel, one of the wonders of early engineering.
