It is hard to come up with new words to describe Jerusalem, it must surely be one of the most fascinating and impressive cities in the world. Our ancient city where history almost seems to lean heavily on the buildings, streets and daily life is a city you should visit at least once in your life. Jerusalem is sacred to three major religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam - each vie for space and sometimes even share the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Arabs,and Jews walk the streets, and it all mingles with this amazing history which shows wherever you walk.
You can see it in the walled City of David - more than 4000 years old, the holy Western (wailing) Wall - the most visited site in Israel and the Western Wall tunnels, where you can see the original massive stone walls of Jerusalem, the restored Jewish quarter, and the Temple Mount sifting project -where people can experience sifting through rubble of the Temple Mount.

Jerusalem Sample program
Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It is Israel's largest city with a population of 763,800 residents. Located in the Judean Mountains, between the Mediterranean Sea and the northern edge of the Dead Sea, modern Jerusalem has grown far beyond the boundaries of the Old City. The city is characterized by a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers, and mild, wet winters. Snow flurries usually occur once or twice a winter, although the city experiences heavy snowfall every three to four years, on average, with short-lived accumulation. Jerusalem has been sacred to Judaism for roughly 3000
years, to Christianity for around 2000 years, and to Islam for approximately 1400 years. The 2000 Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem lists 1204 synagogues, 158 churches, and 73 mosques within the city.

After breakfast – depart for a culinary tour of Jerusalem's most popular and ancient market Israel is an ethnic melting pot of cultures, religions and
immigrants. As a result, the food scene in Israel is extraordinarily diverse and also of a very high standard.
Israeli cuisine comprises of local dishes by people native to Israel and dishes brought to Israel by Jews from the Diaspora. Since before the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and particularly since the
late 1970s, an Israeli Jewish cuisine has developed.
Immigrants to Israel have incorporated elements of the cuisines of the cultures and countries from where they originated. During approximately the fifty years before 1948, there were successive
waves of Jewish immigration, which brought with them a whole range of foods and cooking styles. Immigrants arriving from central Europe brought foods such as schnitzel and strudels, while Russian Jews
brought borsht and herring.
Ashkenazi dishes include chicken soup, schnitzel and chopped liver, gefilte fish and kugel. Sephardic dishes, with Balkan and Turkish influences have been incorporated in Israeli cuisine and include
burekas, yogurt and taramosalata. Yemenite foods include jachnun, malawach, skhug and kubane. Iraqi dishes popular in Israel include amba, various types of kubbeh, sambusac, sabich and pickled
Culinary tour at Jerusalem most old and historical Market – Mahane Yehuda
The Machane Yehuda market is widely recognized as a symbol of the Jerusalem, and for a very good reason: Jerusalemites see it as a place that represents them, symbolizes them, and gives them a unique identity in a larger Israeli social context. It is nicknamed "MachneYuda," which is also the name of one of the finest Israeli restaurants located in the market. But this name
has something inexpressible to language. It is beyond words, because it reminds Jerusalemites of themselves, their childhoods, and the Jerusalem they love. Even though Jerusalem today has many shopping and entertainment centers, there is something about the Machane Yehuda market that attracts people, even without a shopping list. Perhaps it is the ability to simply be who
we are--people who love life and who love Jerusalem.
