Jerusalem center combines hands on learning and fun with an up to date audio- visual presentation
The Israel Museum was renovated and expanded to the tune of $100 million and is a must see site. The Shrine of the Book, home of Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Holyland Model of Second Temple Jerusalem are still two of the main attractions.
The Menachem Begin Heritage Center is patterned after Presidential libraries and has an effective and informative series of audio-visual presentations that tell both Begin’s story along with the story of the birth and formation of modern Israel.
Yad Lakashish is a workshop area providing seniors with work and activities- binding books, arts and crafts, and is a heartwarming place to experience.
Geulah/Meah She’arim is a great area to purchase Judaica and to see how Hasidic and other religious Jews live, work and dress.
Some of the most incredible stalagmites and stalactites you have ever seen- bring your imagination as we will see the Wicked Witch of the West turn into Kermit the Frog.
“Israel in Small”, featuring miniature models of most major tourist sites in Israel, along with gorgeous Bonsai plants. This is a good place to review all we have seen and what we will see on your next trip.
The caves of Tel Maresha in the park are fun to explore, winter or summer. They are temperate all year round, and we can sign up for Archaeological Seminar’s Dig for a Day, and actually dig, sift and spelunk with the experts!
Tel Goded, Khirbet Midras, Khirbet Ithri (Atari) and Herodion all have caves where Bar Kochva’s heroic army would sneak out and attack Roman Legionnaires. Eighteen hundred years later we will be able to retrace their maneuvers in one or more of these man-made caves.
Perhaps we will ascend to Sha’arayim, or taste wines at the boutique winery
