Shalom everyone! On this tour I want to take you from the Viewpoint to the Old city walls and its biblical stories to the 19th and early 20th Century Western City of Jerusalem, where we will visit the first neighborhood outside the Old City Walls, that was built at 1860, Mishkanot Sha'ananim, the first train station in the Middle East and a little bit of the German Colony. We will talk about the Bible, history, archaeology, nature, politics, coexistence, day to day life, and much more... We will see how despite the hard conflicts this city stands as a spiritual capital for all of mankind. Join me!

I have left reviews for many of the tours that Itamar takes us on, and really have run out now of words to pass on to others, he is so very good. At this time in my life, I have become a student again, and Itamar is my teacher. 'Nuff said.
