First day of touring – the Old City

After a wonderful Israeli breakfast at the hotel, our first stop is at the Dung Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem.


Our guide Mike gave us a brief run down of the history of this particular gate, then we moved on to the Western Wall plaza.


Rabbi Cohen led all of us in a shehechianu blessing on our arrival in Israel.


Now we’re beginning our tour of the western Wall Tunnels as we go under the plaza and relive the history of the building of the temple mount. No cel service down there so I’ll catch up later.
