About the tour

Join me on a special tour at a special time of the year - the 9th of Av - the day that commemorates the destruction of the First Temple by Babylon and the Second Temple by Rome. Together we will explore the Davidson Center and archeological park and see the glorious remains of ancient Jerusalem that known rabbis such as Hillel, Shamai, and even Jesus walked in its street. We will learn about the reason for the Destruction of the second temple and how relevant it is for our days.

Very interesting, very informative. So impressive and amazing. And on top the interview with the politician, that was great.

Another brilliant tour from Itamar - I find his tours fascinating and you learn so much from the information he gives and explains - such passion shown for what he does brilliantly

I stayed just a few minutes. The Wall and the surrounding area wasn't at all like I remember it (when I was there 40 years ago), and I didn't want the tour to ruin my memories. Had NOTHING to do w/the tour or guide.
