February 22nd and 24th - the Old City on the ground and on the ramparts

posted Feb 18, 2010, 10:42 PM by Jack Cadranel
On Monday February 22nd we shall tour Eastern Churches in the Old City.  Orthodox churches are amongst the oldest Christian institutions in Jerusalem. We will see historic and richly decorated buildings, learn a little of their history and experience their liturgy as we visit churches from the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, Armenian and Greek Catholic traditions.  Please wear modest clothing for this tour.
We shall meet just outside the Jaffa Gate at 1.30 pm.
On Wednesday February 24th we shall take A Walk on the Walls.  Starting at the Jaffa Gate we'll follow the Ramparts Walk to the Damascus Gate and see the Old City and beyond from a whole new perspective.  We'll return to ground level and walk through the colorful local markets of Old City on our way back to the Jaffa Gate.
We'll meet at 9.30am just outside the Jaffa Gate.
Each of these tours lasts 2-3 hours and costs NIS 60 per person plus site entry fees.  There are site entry fees of NIS 5 per person on Monday's tour and NIS 16 per person on Wednesday.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or
