Tour With Jack gets back into full swing this coming week.
On Monday 3rd May we'll 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 2.30pm just outside the Jaffa Gate.

On Wednesday May 5th we shall explore Ethiopia Street.  To some this was a “treife gasse” but in the late 19th and early 20th centuries it was the intellectual heart of Jerusalem. Priests, libraries, schools, the Hagana, the Joint and Jerusalem's intelligentsia all found a place in this intriguing neighbourhood and many countries had their embassies here.  On this tour you will visit Jerusalem’s Ethiopian church, the home of Eliezer Ben Yehuda and much more.
We shall meet at the junction of HaRav Kook and HaNevi'im Streets at 9.30am.

Please wear comfortable shoes and bring hats and water for these tours.  Each of them lasts 2-3 hours and costs NIS 60 per person plus site admission fees.  On Monday's tour there is an admission fee of NIS 16.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or tourwithjack@gmail.com .
The following week we'll tour Nachlaot on Monday 10th May at 2.30pm.  On Wednesday 12th May, Yom Yerushalayim, the tour will tell the story of the Battle for the Jewish Quarter 1948 and 1967.  It starts at 9.30am.
