Culturally and historically interesting tour in West Jerusalem with visits to the Israeli Parliament, the Israel Museum and the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem


Our educational city tour begins at the Israel Museum. It is the country's largest cultural institution and one of the world's leading museums of fine art and archaeology. Here we delve into Israel's moving history and the development of Judaism.  . Near the Israel Museum is the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. The 120 members of parliament are elected for four years. If you want, you can take a guided tour and see the parliament. The Menorah, a seven-branched bronze candelabrum with seven arms depicting important events in Jewish history, is definitely worth a visit. From the Knesset we make our way to the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, which was founded in 1953 by a decision of the Knesset and is intended to commemorate the Nazi extermination of the Jews. The events of the persecution of the Jews are documented chronologically in the memorial's museum, the Museum of the History of the Holocaust.
