Details about this tour

Meet your guide at Abraham Hostel Jerusalem (by Davidka Square), and walk the short distance to the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods around the city. Visit a community of strictly Orthodox Jews who have, in most senses, rejected modern culture.
Stroll around and enjoy several stops to see a working synagogue, charity and community center, girls school and even a soup kitchen. Learn about the Haredi Jews as you walk, from their beliefs to their lifestyles and culture, which is evident around you. Visit a bakery to sample traditional Jewish pastries such as Rugelach and Challah, bread made for Shabbat.
To help understand their culture further, your next stop is at a large library, which holds an impressive collection of ancient Jewish artifacts. After four hours exploring the district, return to the start point where your tour ends.
Please note: This tour does not include aMea She'arim walking tour.

    Der Tour Leiter war Prima. Die Tour Beschreibung entsprach jedoch nicht der Realität. Es wurde keine lokale Familie besucht, eine Synagoge wurde nur durch das Fenster betrachtet und des Essen in einem Imbiss musste Extra bezahlt werden.
