About the tour

During the last month of the Hebrew calendar, the month of Elul, and during the ten days between the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) and the day of atonement (Yom Kippur) - for 40 days total - Jews will say the night prayers, the Slichot, in order to ask God for forgiveness for our sins in the past year and take time to contemplate and reflect on how to better behave and how to improve our relationship with others, with God and also - with ourselves in the year to come. These night prayers became more and more popular and many non - religious Israelis are coming to Jerusalem to experience the ecstatic prayer at the Western Wall. Join me for a walk from Jaffa Gate to the Western Wall in the middle of the night.

As usual Itamar presented an interesting and informative tour, giving an opportunity to participate virtually at an event I would never have joined or understood in person. Itamar gives insight into so many aspects of life in Israel, his tours are not to be missed

This was different and very uplifting. The walk through the streets in Jerusalem at night was good, the commentary was great and seeing so many people walking about. The Kotel was great and loved listenning to the Prayers
