posted Mar 22, 2012, 11:22 PM by Jack Cadranel
Discover what life was like When Jews Lived in the Muslim Quarter. Over the centuries the boundaries of the "four quarters" of the Old City of Jerusalem have always been porous. Our tour on Monday March 26th takes you into the Muslim Quarter and tells the story of the many Jewish homes, businesses and institutions to be found there between the 1840s and the 1930s. 
Meet at 9.30 a.m. at the bus stop by the Jewish Quarter parking lot. (Bus No.38) 
A visit to Ir David brings Jerusalem's ancient history to life: The Canaanite city and its water system built 3,700 years ago, royal buildings from the time of the Kings of Israel, the tunnel dug by King Hezekiah to defend against the Assyrian seige and evidence of the Roman army's massacre of Jerusalem's citizens after the destruction of Herod's Temple. Join our tour on Wednesday March 28th and see for yourself. 
Meet at 9.30 a.m. by the ticket office of the Ir David visitors' centre.
