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.
