About the tour

Just when you think Jerusalem can't possibly be more beautiful... There comes Ein Karem! Join me at one of the hidden gems of the city and walk Ein Karem with me. We will talk about the history of the village and the new testament stories in it (according to Luke): The Birthplace of John the Baptist, the visit Mary paid to Elizabeth, the place where baby John was saved during the massacre of the innocents, and more. We will hear about brave women from Mary and Elizabeth to a Russian princess and a Jewish holocaust survivor and we will enjoy the amazing views, nature alleyways, and churches all around. *We won't enter the churches- most of them are closed due to Covid and the signal is very limited.

A most interesting and informative tour! I would never have thought of visiting this village in a million years! Now it's right at the top of the list! It would be magical to visit it in person! Thank you so much, Itamar! You are a star guide!
