Jerusalem Old City – The Jewish Quarter and Beyond
Excavations in Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter have revealed a wealth of finds from the First and Second Temple periods. See the sites and enjoy the special ambiance of this renewed part of the Old City along a wheelchair accessible route developed by the Jewish Quarter’s Center for Tourists with Disabilities (02-6283415/6). When you call them, ask about the wheelchair-friendly route through other quarters of the Old City around the market and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Visit the Israel Museum, which houses what is considered by many to be the most important archaeological discovery of the 20th century – the Dead Sea Scrolls, which is partially wheelchair-accessible. See the famous Model of Second Temple Jerusalem and an audiovisual presentation about life in the tumultuous days of the Second Temple.
Next, visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, touring the astounding new Museum with its new and moving focus on the individual in the Holocaust, the Children’s Memorial and Hall of Remembrance.
