Holidays, Rituals and Ceremonies in Jerusalem

Tours in Jerusalem with Yishay Shavit - A Christmas tree

In Jerusalem every day is a holiday, but there are still some days that are special.  In these holidays people from all over the world gather around and come to the holy city to perform some very diverse ceremonies.  Selichot at the Western Wall, Good Friday, a ceremony marking the end of World War I, the Sigd, Palm Sunday, and Christmas are only a number of examples for these types of events.  When we take tours on these days we will learn about the origins of these holidays, the different customs and their history, the texts read in the ceremonies, and much more.
Highlights:  depends on the ceremony and the day.
Time:  each ceremony has its own time.  Some late at night, some in the early morning, and some all through the day.
Level of difficulty:  these are ceremonies with many people and a big crowd.  Sometimes the roads to the area are closed so there is a lot of waking and so these tours’ level of difficulty is moderate to hard.
