JERUSALEM NEW CITY – THE MODERN CAPITAL
Israel Museum & Dead Sea Scrolls Founded in 1965, this is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel and one of the world’s leading art and archaeology museums. Here you will find the oldest existing biblical manuscripts in the world, the Dead Sea Scrolls, which are housed in the Shrine of the Book.
Mount Herzl National Cemetery A burial place for prominent Zionist figures such as Theodore Herzl, Golda Meir and Yitzhak Rabin, here you will also find an expansive military cemetery; one quite full for a country so young. The loss of the soldiers who fought for the land of Israel is palpable. [For whatever reason, our tour guide didn't take us to Mount Herzl]
Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum In 1963, the Yad Vashem Museum was established as the world center for Holocaust research, education and commemoration. With survivor testimonies, powerful displays, artifacts and memorial gardens, this museum embodies one crucial message: Never again.
1967 Six Day War - Ammunition Hill On the night of June 6th, 1967, a four-hour battle took place here at Ammunition Hill in which 36 men lost their lives. Today you can view the trenches and reconstructed bunker that serves as a museum and tells the story of the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem.
Menorah near the Knesset
The Knesset wasn't on the agenda. However, this is the closest that we got: it was closed to visitors.
