On Monday January 4th we shall be touring 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 January 6th we shall tour the Temple Mount.  The Temple Mount is holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians. We shall explore the history and significance of this important and controversial site and see some of the buildings which occupy it today. 
We'll meet at 8.00 am just inside the Dung Gate (Bus lines 1, 2, 3, 38).  Please wear modest clothing for this tour and do not bring prayer books, bibles, tefillin or any religious books or articles.

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.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or tourwithjack@gmail.com.
