Jerusalem's beauty lies in its juxtaposition of old and new. The city welcomes its visitors with a perfect mix of modernity and history: beyond the Old City walls, lies a new Jerusalem, with the best features of modern life - culture, shopping, nightlife and dining.

Once you leave the Old City walls, the new city offers many other sites of cultural, music, art, and gastronomical interest. There are many museums to visit, including the Israeli Museum, which is one of the top ranking Museums in the world, parks to picnic in and quaint neighborhoods to stroll through, such as Yemin Moshe, the German Colony and Ein Kerem.

Participants can enjoy a walk through the Ben-Yehudah Pedestrian Mall in the Center of the city, eat falafel and absorb the Jerusalem vibe, and then for a true modern-day Jerusalem experience it is highly recommended to go to the Mahane Yehuda Market, or "the Shuk" as it is known to locals. There you will find everything from fresh produce and spices to house-ware and textiles.
