Southern Wall Excavations:
A peek into Jewish life 2,000 year ago
The Southern Wall Archaeological Excavations tour features the ruins recovered following the Six-Day War (1967), when Israel wrested control of the Old City of Jerusalem from Jordan. The Southern Wall Excavations are like a time capsule, helping us better understand ancient styles of worshiping in the temple as well as giving us insight into many of today's contemporary rituals. In this tour, we will walk the paths Jewish pilgrim have trod over time and consider the impact this has had on their identity.

Registration is open.
We look forward to welcoming this year's participants!
