Tour to Jerusalem

This summer my Hebrew class took a tour to Jerusalem and I thought I'd share a few pictures from the trip.

First thing you need to bring for any tour is a local sniper. Just in case.

First stop is Latrun where the armored corps museum is located.

Next is Mount Hertzl - a nice hanukkia for the holiday.

On Mount Hertzl are the graves fallen soldiers and important Israelis.
Top to bottom: Yitzak Rabin (R) and wife Leah; Golda Meir; Theodore Hertzl, founder of modern Zionism.

Next stop was Yad V'Shem, the Holocaust Memorial museum.

A verse on the exit of the memorial (Ezekiel 37:14).

In Jerusalem, a nice little neighborhood called Yamin Moshe.

One of the battle-scarred gates into the old city.

Arguably the most contested piece of real estate on the globe: Temple Mount.
