Happy Yom Yerushalaim (Jerusalem Day)



This being Jerusalem Day, I figured this would be a good opertunity to tell you about some of my favorite things to do in Jerusalem.

Here's my list:

  1. Go to the The Kotel. This is of course the #1 attraction of Jerusalem. Be there, Pray, put your note in the wall, and bring plenty of change to give the beggers.

  2. Take the train from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I love this route, it is a scenic route and should be considered an event in itself. This is Not an express line, so don't expect to get anywhere fast.

  3. Window shopping at Mamila. The area that used to be a slum turned into a very nice shopping area, with a few very nice cafes.

  4. The Tower of David museum is my favorite paid for attraction in Jerusalem. I love touring through the ruins and seeing the displays that make the history more understandable then just walking around or listening to a guide.

  5. Sit in the shade of the tree in Yemin Moshe. Though you may or may not be interested in seeing the reproduction of Moshe Montefiore's carriage walking around the square with the windmill and view overlooking the old city walls and sitting in the shade just looking out at the view is a recommended experience.
