When beginning any of the Jewish international heritage tours, you will be in for some astonishing sights and experiences. However, in order to know what to expect, here is a little insight into the key sights of the Jewish heritage tours of Israel. The ability to venture to these locations may differ depending on the type of tour you pick. If you would like to see further details on what areas will be visited on which tour, please see our Jewish Heritage tours page.
One of the largest areas to visit in Israel, Tel Aviv has a little bit of everything and in large portions. Fueled with entertainment, history, business, and especially culture, Tel Aviv is a hot spot for travel. There are plenty of live shows to see, and games as well. Tel Aviv contains some unique escape rooms to try out with your whole family. The city also carries Independence Hall, the site where Israel was declared a State. There are plenty of other historical areas to visit as well, from Jaffa to Jericho.
One of the most uniquely cultured cities in Israel, Mea Shearim is a largely orthodox city that offers visitors a unique experience of Jewish culture. The culture is heavily preserved among the people. The peoples’ clothing and the city’s architecture will make you feel as though you have been teleported back into the age of Orthodox Judaism.
Tomb of King David
This is absolutely a sight you don’t want to miss out on. At Mt. Zion lies one of the Holiest sites in the Jewish nation. Although David, the Shepard turned warrior King, was buried elsewhere, this location is still a wonderful site for Jews to come to learn more about the history of David and the city of Zion.
If you really want to experience the purpose of heritage tours of Israel, then you will not want to miss out on the Israel Museum by Knesset. This museum is not only known for housing spectacular artwork that reflects Israel’s culture, but also for containing the Dead Sea scrolls! There are family activities as well, featuring both an Illustration Library and Art Classes for any age.
The Dead Sea
Towards the end of the trip, you will come across an opportunity for relaxation unlike anything else. The lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea is the area where you can get some beneficial rejuvenation. Many people rub the minerals of the Dead Sea on their bodies in order to receive the rich minerals. Other healthy aspects include the low amounts of allergens and the reduced ultraviolet levels (because it is so far from solar radiation). It is easy to float in the Sea because of its buoyancy levels. Simply put, the Dead Sea is a swim you will never forget.
