"O Jerusalem!" - Mount of Olives and the Via Dolorosa
Starting with a breathtaking overlook over Jerusalem's Holy Basin, we will visit the place where Jesus entered Jerusalem during the last week of his life. We will walk in his footsteps and along the route where people were waving at him with palm branches on the Mount of Olives, calling him: "Hosanna!" - redeem us.
Continuing down the path, we will visit the Dominus Flevit Church - where Jesus cried over Jerusalem and predicted its destruction, as well as the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus spent the last night of his life - praying to G-d, filled with agony. We will enter into the Church of All Nations to see the 19th Century church built to commemorate the Agony of Jesus.
Later we will enter the Old City through the Lions Gate, and follow the Via Dolorosa (path of suffering) as we ascend to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. At the Church, we will commemorate the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Along the way, we will smell and taste some of the flavors from the colorful Arab Market, getting a bite to eat and stopping for a special view of the Dome of the Rock and the Temple Mount.
