What to expect

The Jewish people invented the concept of the weekend and the day of rest, and for that, we can all be grateful. Join the 2-hour Shabbat Experience on Friday nights at the Jaffa Gate as your expert local guide introduces you to one of the most important aspects of traditional Judaism.

You haven't really grasped the power of Western Hall until you have seen it in the golden hours before Shabbat begins. As people begin to arrive at the Wailing Wall and offer their sincere and powerful Shabbat prayers, you will understand that you are witnessing one of the most important elements of the traditional Jewish faith.

Focused on the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, your local and licensed guide will take you to some of Jerusalem's most important Jewish sites. Discover the Hurva (ruined) Synagogue and the four Sephardic synagogues as your tour guide explains some of the different aspects and movements of Judaism, and talks you through the external characteristics of the Jewish Orthodox. Finally, this tour concludes at the Wailing Wall, but you can also walk back to Jaffa Gate with the guide.
