Passover in the Jewish Quarter

A wide range of events for the whole family will be available during Hol Hamoed, including an exhibition of archeological findings from the period of King Hezekiah, a guided audiovisual tour of the locations central to the history of the Jewish people, an evening of liturgical songs (piyutim) at the renovated Hurva Synagogue and a series of educative and varied activities for children, too. These activities will run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the guided tour will run each hour from 9 to 6, including two tours for English-speakers (at 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.). The guided tours of the Hurva Synagogue will take place on Sunday and Monday only, at 1 p.m. in English and at 2 p.m. in Hebrew. If you prefer wandering around in the Jewish Quarter without a guide, you may do so with an individual audio guide in several languages, including English, Russian, French, Spanish and of course Hebrew. Additional activities for the whole family will take place also in the Archeological Garden at the Davidson Center, where children – and adults, too – may reconstruct the Western Wall with special game stones.
