We arrived in the old city through the Jaffa gate and climbed David's tower. It was a 5 star view of the city. We also got the feel for the lay out of Jerusalem Old and New.
We saw some sites in the Jewish quarter; it was Shabbat so NO SHOPPING but we did get in the outside of a few Synagogues. I was amazed to see this synagogue finally built as for many years there was so much infighting I never they would agree on who owned it so that they COULD finish it. This is it the Hurva Synagogue and click on the link to find out its history.
I didn't think it was possible but we actually fed 39 people in about 30 minutes or less and had great falafel and hummus. Yum.
Then it was off the Shuk to see the wares and finally back to our hotel.
Motzie Shabbat after Havdahlah with Rabbi Serotta we went to see the Sound and Light show at David's Tower. We weren't show what to expect but we loved it. Here are just a few pictures to show how they transformed the space with JUST sound and light.
So this was our Shabbat more on the B'nai Mitzvah soon!
