The volunteer organization Yad Sarah tour four vans with wheelchair-bound people on a free organized tour on Jerusalem Day on Sunday. It was the second such tour and focus on “Jerusalem in the last 150 years.”
The stops included the Mishkenot Sha’ananim area of Yemin Moshe, Montefiore’s windmill, water sources in the city, the First Station, the German Colony and Baka. The wheelchair tour will run according to the participants’ pace and will include rest spots. The tour guides picked them up at their homes and returned them at the end of the tour, providing rest stops so the participants could cope with the heat.
